Probate and Estate Administration Solicitors in Portsmouth

Following the death of a loved one, there will be much to take care of, including applying for probate and the administration of their estate.  While this can be something you carry out yourself, particularly if you have the time and skills required to understand the complexities of the law surrounding this area, there are situations where it would be prudent to have the advice of experienced experts in the field.

We would recommend you seek legal advice and support when carrying out probate and estate administration if you are in any of the following situations:

  • If your loved one has died intestate, i.e. there is no Will
  • If charities are named as beneficiaries as this carries additional responsibilities
  • If there is the possibility of disputes arising
  • If there are Trusts included within the Will
  • If there are likely to be Inheritance Tax complications
  • If you do not have enough time to focus your attentions on the process.
