Administration of Estates

Thinking about legalities at a time when someone has passed away is never easy. At Fletcher Day we offer a full, compassionate service to help you though this difficult time.

Our experienced Private Client team can assist with as many or as few of the various aspects of estate administration as you require, from obtaining a Grant of Probate and assessing and settling of inheritance tax payments to full administration including winding up and distribution of assets. We also advise on the issues surrounding intestacy, post-death variations and the tax implications of post-death arrangements.

We understand the need for a straight forward and sympathetic approach when it comes to bereavement and our team will do their best to keep you informed as to progression of your matter with a welcoming friendly approach. We are also able to assist with the affairs of individuals based overseas including the resealing of foreign Grants in the UK for the administration of UK assets.

Dealing with probate and estate administration adds to an already stressful situation, and we are here to alleviate the burden, making trying times as smooth as they can be. Our solicitors are experienced in advising on both contentious and non-contentious probate issues and determining whether probate and/or estate administration is necessary for your particular circumstances.

We offer expert support on how to minimise the impact of taxation on your assets and we offer guidance to those who have been appointed as an executor of a will. Our private clients typically have overseas assets, thus our in-depth international experience means we are ideally positioned to help with cross-border cases and able to arrange probate reseals when necessary.
