Probate and Administration of Estates

Probate and administration of estates – we can help

Losing someone we love is probably the most emotionally traumatic experience that will ever befall us during our lifetime. The friendly and approachable team at Sinclairslaw are on hand to help ease the burden and avoid the challenges that dealing with probate and administration of estates can cause. We can also help take the strain if you are appointed executor on behalf of a friend and our costs will be paid from the estate.

Our team of experienced and sympathetic solicitors is headed up by one of the directors, Vanessa Collins, at our Twickenham office, and in Wales by Lisa Davies who is based in our Cardiff office.

Dealing with probate and the administration of the estate can be daunting. Would you know what to do when someone dies to put their affairs in order?  There can be many problems caused when an estate is not administered according to the rules and these can all be avoided by getting proper legal help with the probate. Our specialist lawyers can advise you about obtaining probate and dealing with the estate administration process as a whole.

We also advise on any tax and other financial implications that arise during or after the granting of probate itself. We have established links with accountants and investment managers who can assist us in providing an efficient service and ensure that the estate administration progresses as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

At the outset we will provide you with the best estimate we can as to what our fees are likely to be. As we learn more about what is involved, we can be clearer as to whether that estimate should be reviewed. We will be happy to offer a fixed fee in most cases to give you greater certainty.
