Administering the Estate

Dealing with a deceased person’s estate is often complex, confusing and stressful whether someone has made a Will or not and may involve:

  • Completing an Inheritance Tax return
  • Payment of Inheritance Tax (if necessary)
  • Obtaining a Grant of Probate
  • Collecting in the deceased‘s assets
  • Paying all outstanding debts and funeral expenses
  • Settling any gifts specified in the Will
  • Selling property & shares
  • Dealing with other tax issues (income tax, capital gains tax)
  • Setting up trust funds (if required)
  • Payment of the remaining Estate funds
