Our probate solicitors are very knowledgeable and have worked on complex and unique probate cases and estates. The administration of an estate can also sometimes offer opportunities for tax-saving procedures.
We can help resist in cases where family disputes occur if the will seems not to reflect the requirements of the individual making it. When a will has been lost (“intestacy”) we can make sure that the estate is distributed correctly.
Issues caused by foreign residence, foreign domicile and foreign nationality can sometimes happen during the administration of a will because how a will is read or the law which applies to its interpretation can be that from a foreign country. When matters such as these occur, we are used to handling any problems and can resolve any issues knowledgeably to produce the best results, in a manner that is best for the family or financially. We have a lot of experience in tax minimisation.
There are regulations to be fulfilled which should not be overlooked. In general, statutory advertisements should be made to protect the legal position of the executor. A clearance certificate from HMRC is generally advised to defend the estate against any future claims. Our knowledge of all aspects of probate law means that you will have the advantage of our expertise and will be protected against unforeseen circumstances.
