Probate and Administration of Estates
SA Law offers a sensitive yet practical and efficient service to families faced with dealing with the estate of a loved one.
SA Law can deal with all the work necessary in the administration of a deceased’s estate. We will notify all relevant financial and other organisations of the death, and will obtain all the necessary valuations and other information to account to HM Revenue & Customs (necessary in most estates, even those not liable to pay Inheritance Tax). We will prepare the application for the grant of representation, and guide the personal representatives through the application.
We will deal with the gathering in or sale of assets, and the distribution of the proceeds to the beneficiaries of the estate. We deal with all aspects of taxation relating to estates, including Inheritance Tax, Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax. Our Residential Conveyancing department can deal with the sale of the property, and will work in close conjunction with us to make it easier for you.
We can prepare post-death Deeds of Variation, for the mitigation of Inheritance Tax, or for other family reasons.
