When acting on behalf of an executor or administrator, we can help with all aspects of probate – ensuring the correct distribution of an estate is carried out according to a loved-one’s wishes.
Whether you are a personal representative or a beneficiary, Edwards Duthie Shamash Solicitors can look after the administration of both estates where there is a Will and intestate estates where there is no Will. We can obtain Grants of Probate or Letters of Administration and we are also often appointed to act as professional executors given the wealth of our experience.
Being an executor or administrator of an estate can be a complex and difficult task to carry out. We will ensure that you have a full understanding of the Inheritance Tax position of the estate and will help you ensure that you meet all of your obligations in such a role including distributing the estate.
There are times when someone who is due to inherit may want others to benefit as well as themselves. We can assist you with preparing a Deed of Variation to facilitate this.
We understand that this is a very difficult period in people’s lives, and this is why we take pride in providing a practical and timely service with compassion to all involved at all times. We can deal with any estate or legal issue, no matter how complex, in the most sympathetic and efficient way.
