After a person has passed away you need to obtain a grant of probate in order to deal with a persons estate. This is a legal document provided by the court which certifies you are the right person to handle these matters. You will not be able to sell property or take control of assets without it. We can help you with the process of getting the grant and completing the necessary tax forms all at an all-inclusive, low cost.
Once you have obtained the grant of probate you can then start the process of administering the estate. This involves collecting in all the assets of the person who has passed away, selling any property and paying off any outstanding debts. Once this is complete you can then distribute the remaining estate to the beneficiaries in line with a will or intestacy laws.
