If you have been named as an executor in the will of a loved one, you are responsible for administering their estate. This means you’ll have to organise their assets, pay their debts and taxes, and distribute what is left according to their wishes.

To do so you’ll need what is known as a ‘Grant of Probate’.

We can assist and advise you on:

  • Applying for the Grant of Probate
  • Investigating and valuing the estate
  • Collecting estate funds
  • Filling out Income and Inheritance Tax returns and paying any tax due
  • Paying creditors
  • Selling or transferring ownership of property
  • Distributing funds and assets according to the will

This can be a complicated and stressful process without the necessary legal expertise. Contact us today on 028 90 49 3349 or leave an enquiry and we’ll call you.

What if someone dies without a will?

If someone dies without a will they have died ‘intestate’ and the Rules of Intestacy must be followed.

Usually the closest relative of the deceased will be appointed as the ‘Personal Representative’ (PR).

Their responsibilities include settling unpaid debts, paying Inheritance Tax and distributing assets to beneficiaries in accordance with the Rules of Intestacy.

In order to do so, they will often have to apply to Court for what is known as the ‘Grant of Letters of Administration’.

When is a Grant of Letters of Administration Needed?

Common examples of when a Grant will be necessary include:

  • If there is more than £10,000 in the deceased person’s sole name
  • If property is involved
  • If there are investments or shares to be sold or transferred

You will not always need a Grant. Call Keenan Solicitors today on 028 90 49 3349 or leave an enquiry to find out more.
