When loved ones pass dealing with administration can be a daunting thought. Here at PCS Legal, we strive to make the process as simple and stress-free as possible.
We can deal with applications to the Probate Registry in connection with applying for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration, depending on whether the deceased died with a valid Will or if they died intestate (without a Will in place). We can review the paperwork and any assets belonging to the deceased which enables us to complete the relevant Inheritance Tax Return to be submitted to HM Revenue & Customs.
Whilst HM Revenue & Customs process the necessary paperwork, we prepare an Oath for execution by the Administrator or the Estate which will need to be sworn. Finally, once we have the required certification from HM Revenue & Customs and your Oath we submit an application to the Probate Registry for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration.
Once the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration is received we can complete the administration of the Estate on behalf of the Executors/Beneficiaries and provide a final Estate Account and pay any Inheritance Tax Liability due.
