When you have suffered a bereavement, dealing with lawyers is often the last thing on your mind. However, the fact remains that there are certain legal processes that need to be completed following a person's death. Our Suffolk probate solicitors can guide you through the process from beginning to end.
With sufficient time, knowledge, and effort, it may be possible to apply for probate without the assistance of a lawyer. However, many individuals feel it is more than worthwhile enlisting the help of the experts at this difficult time.
Below are just some of the stages involved in administering an Estate;
Informing the banks or building societies that hold any assets
Valuing the Estate
Settling any debts, assuming there are sufficient funds available
Calculating the inheritance tax bill
Allocating the assets as set out in the Will
Our legal team make it their priority to handle as much of the legal work as they can, so you can focus on coming to terms with your loss. We will also keep you up to date on the status of your case so you will have complete peace of mind.
As well as probate, our legal specialists can also assist with inheritance tax planning and with Lasting Power of Attorney. Our team will be happy to discuss these matters in more detail.
Based in Suffolk, our legal team are able to assist clients in Bury St Edmunds, Colchester, Hadleigh, Ipswich, Needham Market and Sudbury, as well as further afield across England and Wales.
