Our probate practitioners have many years’ experience with probate cases and can handle complex and unusual estates. The administration of an estate can give scope for tax-saving measures where desired. There are also opportunities to move matters forward faster and more efficiently.
We can resist in cases where there are family disputes if a will does not appear to reflect the wishes of the person who made it. If a will cannot be found, we make sure that the estate is distributed to the correct entitled individuals.
There can be questions of foreign residence, foreign domicile and foreign nationality that sometimes arise in the administration of a will, because of how a Will is read, or the law which applies to its interpretation can be from another country. When matters like this arise, we are accustomed to dealing with any problems and can resolve all of the issues quickly and efficiently in a way that produces the best results, either financially or in the way that is best for the family. Tax minimisation is one of our specialities.
There are also some formalities to be complied with which should not be missed. Statutory advertisements should generally be made to protect the legal situation of the executor. A clearance certificate from HMRC is usually advisable to protect the estate against future claims. Our knowledge of these subjects means that you will have the benefit of our expertise and experience and therefore will be protected against unforeseen circumstances.
