Obtaining a grant of probate
If you have been named as the executor of a Will, we can assist you in obtaining a grant of probate, which will give you the legal right to handle the estate of the deceased. We could help you apply for letters of administration instead of a Will if there was no Will so that you can assume possession of the deceased’s estate.
Taking care of an estate
We can walk you through every step of the estate administration procedure, ensuring that you meet your legal requirements and making the process as painless as possible. Our lawyers can help you assemble the estate’s assets, have them evaluated, pay any Inheritance Tax payable, make the bequests stated in the Will, and prepare the estate accounts.
Resolving inheritance disagreements
When you consult a solicitor at CAS, they will provide clear, practical advice and representation to help you reach a constructive conclusion as quickly and painlessly as possible if there are any disputes over the inheritance.
In most circumstances, our Wills and Probate Solicitors can settle inheritance disputes outside of court through negotiation and non-confrontational conflict resolution. Still, if court procedures are necessary, CAS solicitors can guarantee you get the best representation possible.
