There are a number of important tasks that need to be completed when someone dies. We understand that it can be an extremely stressful time for you and aim to relieve the pressure by taking care of these matters on your behalf, to enable you time to grieve during this difficult time.
If the person who has died leaves a valid will then the named executors take on the responsibility. Where a valid will is not in place, the person is said to have died intestate, which means that the Intestacy Rules determine who can be appointed as the administrators of the estate. This is a process that we will be happy to guide you through to ensure clarity.
The role of an executor or administrator can be overwhelming particularly as you are personally liable for administering the estate correctly. The deceased’s estate may involve complex matters or may be of high value which is why every executor or administrator can instruct a solicitor of choice to assist them with the estate administration, with the legal fees being settled by the deceased’s estate.
