Probate and Estates
There is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the legal requirements when someone dies and the need for Probate and Estate Administration services. It is a common misconception that estate administration is a quick and easy task. In fact it is likely that most people faced with the task of winding up a relative’s estate will need advice and assistance and that is where Guardian Wealth Management Legal Services can help.
We can provide initial advice and where needed, give assistance at whatever level is required. This ranges from a comprehensive end to end service which deals with all aspects of administering an estate including the sale of property and businesses, completion of Inheritance Tax returns, identification and collection of all assets, paying creditors and tracing beneficiaries.
Alternatively, we can simply obtain a UK Grant of Probate or assist with for example, valuing assets, selling property and dealing with tax returns. In consultation with us, you can decide what level of assistance is needed and there is a menu of services to select.
We appreciate not only the technical and legal aspects of this process but also the level of interpersonal skills required when dealing with such sensitive matters. We ensure, therefore, that you will be given a single point of contact within the team along with a direct line telephone number.
Our legally qualified team have significant experience and expertise to handle the most complex of estates.
Our rates are competitive and we will give you an estimate of the costs involved at the outset.
