I am an Executor of an Estate – What do I have to do?

If you are unsure of what is involved and need advice, contact our team of specialist probate lawyers who have a wealth of experience in helping people through what can be a difficult time and emotional time. You are permitted to take legal advice and the legal costs of usually paid from the deceased’s estate.

Whether there is a Will or not we will help you to sort out the financial affairs and will help you through the process of dividing the estate between the people who are entitled to it.
