If you’ve lost someone it can be a very distressing time and there is no reason why you shouldn’t feel overwhelmed at the prospect of being designated personal representative for administering their will, even having agreed to it when they were alive. Things are undoubtedly different once a loved one has passed away and the thought of dealing with complex legal administration is probably the last thing you want to have to worry about. At Andrew & Andrew we have probate solicitors Portsmouth who are highly experienced and committed to helping you through the process of probate. The practice has been established for over 60 years, so we’re well placed to give you the right support and get the job done smoothly and efficiently.
What we can do to help
When you’re grieving after a loss, the prospect of collating information about the deceased’s assets and assessing the value of them is probably the last thing you want to do. As probate solicitors Portsmouth we can shoulder the burden and then settle any liabilities and tax payments that may need to be taken from the estate. We will also help you get the grant of representation, which allows you to deal with the execution of the will. Sometimes, an estate is simple and a grant is not required. We will ascertain whether or not one is required for you and then we will apply for it if it is needed. By having this deed, we will be able to help you with the concomitant administrative process and get you to the point where the estate is divided between the stated recipients.
Anything else I need to know?
If you would like to make a will, we can also help you with that. Making a will is essential in ensuring that your wishes are carried out after your death. It is perhaps even more important if you have children who are minors, as you will need to declare what arrangements you wish to be made for them, including who will become their custodians. A will also means that your hard-earned money and property will not be taken by the state, in the event that there is nobody else eligible to inherit your estate without a will in place. Whether you wish to leave your money to a friend, a supportive neighbour, or a charity, we can make this legally binding, so that it should not be able to be contested after your death.
