The loss of a loved one is a difficult time but there are legal processes which need to be followed in order to administer someone’s estate as efficiently as possible. The administration of a deceased person’s estate involves either implementing the terms of their Will or dealing with the distribution of their estate in accordance with the legal rules set out in the Administration of Estates Act 1925.
It can involve:-
Dealing with their property
Dealing with banks, building societies and other investments
Agricultural and business assets
Paying debts
Dealing with the Inland Revenue, particularly for inheritance tax
Distributing legacies
Distributing the remainder of the estate to the people entitled to it
Detailed advice can be given on all the above processes to assist you with the administration in a sympathetic yet efficient manner.
