We offer an all-encompassing service for non-contentious probate cases.
Probate work involves the administration of the estate of the deceased, ensuring that all assets are dealt with and formalities adhered to. Due to its nature, this can be a lengthy process, with many confusing rules and regulations. We are on-hand to deal with the process as quickly and painlessly as possible – whether we are acting as professional representatives, or assisting the executors of the estate.
At D&T Probate Services, we can advise you on appropriate LPAs, should you be unable to make decisions for yourself in the future due to physical or mental incapacity. If you own a business you may also want to consider putting in place a separate document that covers what the arrangements will be for that should the need arise.
Whether you are renewing a Will or drafting your first, there are many aspects to consider. Our legal team has the experience to talk you through different scenarios and ensure all eventualities are covered, minimising complications for relatives and business associates following your death. It is also important to take advice regarding your Inheritance Tax position as there could be ways to mitigate the impact on your beneficiaries with some careful advance planning.
Retaining family wealth and passing on assets to the next generation is a key consideration for most, but it is not always straightforward and has emotional and financial implications. We use extensive knowhow and experience of estate planning to help you put in place plans that will ensure your wishes are carried out and your Inheritance Tax liability is minimised.
