Everyone should make a Will to make sure that their assets are distributed according to their wishes by someone they can trust, preferably in such a way that will reduce any tax payable.

In most cases making a Will is perfectly simple, and we will help you make any difficult decisions by talking through the various options with you. If your estate is large and there is a potential liability to tax, we will discuss with you the various ways in which the liability can be minimised to enable you to pass as much of your property to your beneficiaries as possible.

Administration of Estates

We have been making Wills for clients for many years. A large part of our work involves winding up estates following a death. We provide a sympathetic service, aware that at times, this coincides with a period of bereavement.

Our services include advising upon:

  • Preparation of assets and liabilities statements
  • Preparation of HMRC Returns
  • Deeds of Variation of the Estate
  • Advice on the responsibilities of personal representatives
  • Payment of  or letters of administration (with or without will annexed)

Sadly, sometimes disputes arise over someone’s estate, and in these cases of contentious probate we can act.

If you would like to discuss a matter please telephone Catherine Nelligan on 01242 237477.
