‘Claudine was really flexible over booking to come to our home to discuss writing our wills’
Mrs De Lucchi, West Bridgford
When a loved one dies, the intensity of feelings can be overwhelming.
Having a clear head to be able to focus on the practical tasks that need to take place following death can leave many family members who have been appointed as executors with too much to deal with in reality.
I can provide a professional Probate service to you directly in the comfort of your own home.
This can be an enormous help to relatives coping with the aftermath of bereavement.
What tasks does an Executor carry out?
- Interpret the Will clauses
- Arrange an evaluation of the estate
- Contact banks, creditors, insurance companies etc
- Arrange for the valuation of the estate
- Complete tax returns
- Pay debts (funerals, utility bills and any tax due)
- Swear an oath
- Obtain the grant of representation (Probate)
- Locate beneficiaries
- Advertise the death
- Pay gifts and the residue to beneficiaries
This can be a complicated and time consuming process. Executors are personally and financially liable for the administration of the estate.
Mistakes can be costly and stressful to correct. Having a professional Executor can also avoid conflict between family members and ensure that your wishes are carried out correctly.
Our Probate service is available to you at any of the following stages:
- When making a Will – you can nominate professional Executors in advance
- If you are already an Executor of a Will who feels unable to carry out the task
- If you have a family member who has died without a Will and you need help to carry out the estate administration
How much will it cost?
Many families want total peace of mind that every aspect of estate administration is completed by professionals. Typical fees are 1.5% (plus VAT and disbursements) of the value of the estate.
If you would prefer assistance to obtain the Grant of Probate only the cost is £799 (plus VAT and disbursements). We can also assist with the setting up of trusts that are a feature of many Wills.
