Our Private Client team will assist you with the administration of estates and trusts.
The death of a relative or close friend is likely to be an emotional and difficult time, which members of our Private Client team understand.
If you are appointed Executor under a Will you can try to deal with the administration of the estate yourself or you can ask us to do the work. This will relieve you of the administrative burden, which can often be daunting.
We will do as much or as little of the work as you wish. It is important to understand that the burden placed on an Executor is to make sure an estate is wound up according to the terms of the deceased’s Will and the law. This means collecting in all the assets, paying all the liabilities, including tax where appropriate, and paying out to the beneficiaries.
A full accounting record should be kept and “Estate Accounts” produced at the end of the administration. We have dedicated IT software which deals with these requirements. Please understand that this is not something which can be done on the back of an envelope.
