We appreciate that dealing with the estate of someone who has died can seem officious, burdensome and complicated and that all this comes at a time which in itself is already a difficult challenge. From seemingly mountainous paper work to legal jargon and potentially delicate communication with beneficiaries, much of what is involved is many of the last things you want to deal with when you’re grieving the loss of someone important in your life.
So, let Leigh Duncan Solicitors help you by:
- Interpreting the Will of the deceased and understanding what must be done
- Advising executors and trustees in regard to their duties and rights
- Applying for Probate of the Will
- Dealing with intestacy (where there is no Will)
- Applying for administration rights if the Will is deemed invalid or is absent
- Identifying estate assets and liabilities
- Obtaining valuations of estate property
- Collecting estate financial assets
- Selling or transferring estate property
- Paying estate debts including mortgages, funeral costs, and testamentary expenses
- Administering trust funds
