Making a Will
Many people do not realise the importance of making a Will. If you do not make a Will then the distribution of your estate is automatically dealt with by statute. This obviously means that your estate will be distributed in a way that you may not have wished for it to have been done so. It may be that your loved ones are left without any provision.
Making a Will allows you to leave your assets to whom you choose.
We can also advise you on :-
- Amending a Will
- The validity of an existing Will
- Whether you can successfully challenge the provisions of a Will
Probate and Administration of a Deceased Estate
We also deal with Probate and estate work. We are very conscious of the need for sensitivity in dealing with issues arising at a very difficult time. We do everything we can to approach all aspects of Probate work in a compassionate manner.
Dealing with the death of a loved one is naturally a difficult time. Following a death, there will be both financial and administrative issues that need to be dealt with. We are here to assist you in this process.
Obtaining Probate means collecting together all of the deceased’s property and possessions (their estate) after they have died, dealing with their debts and liabilities and dividing what is left in accordance with the provisions of the deceased’s Will or in accordance with the intestacy provisions.

- Locate lost beneficiaries
- Complete the requisite Inland revenue accounts and settle any Inheritance Tax liability
