Enlisting a specialised probate solicitor is a good idea to give trusted legal advice and help with all of the estate administration required to process a Will. They will help to simplify the process, knowing the correct steps to take to deal with matters quickly and efficiently.

The solicitor will take full responsibility for the administration process, so it takes it off your hands, important when needing time to grieve. It helps reduce the possibility of family disagreements over the division of assets. If parties involved are not happy with the split of money or property, they will have to go through legal channels to voice their concerns.

Many people do not realise the different taxes that have to be paid when administering someone’s estate. These can include Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax, and Inheritance Tax. Tax returns for each need to be completed and our Probate Solicitors at EPO will do this, speaking with the HMRC on your behalf. They will ensure the tax calculated is accurate to avoid under or overpaying, and that they apply for relevant exceptions and reductions.

It is crucial that during the Probate process, all assets are properly managed as set out in a persons Will, and an experienced solicitor is the best way to keep track of the money going in and out. It can be a very lengthy process with many different forms to fill in, often up to a year depending on the makeup of the estate.

In safe hands

I can’t thank David Smith enough for the way in which he handled my divorce. His friendly and approachable manner was much appreciated, throughout what was inevitably a difficult and emotional time. He also fought my corner with tenacity, leading to a fabulous financial settlement. At a time of such uncertainty, it is reassuring to know that you are in safe hands……I would not hesitate to recommend David to anyone going through the same experience.

Great, clear advice delivered in a personable manner

David’s advice was critical in resolving a complex family matter. Without his involvement, the case would have stalled. He helped me to understand the legalities of the situation and provided direction in what I found to be a highly confusing situation. Great, clear advice delivered in a personable manner.

Nothing was too much for him

David really made me at ease and helped me through the whole process. Nothing was too much for him and he always made time for me.

Huge thank you to David

Huge thank you to David for making a horrible stage of my life, going through a hostile divorce a whole lot more bearable. Don’t know how I would have got through it without you.
