When a person dies someone, known as a personal representative, has to sort out their estate - this will include dealing with any money, property, personal belongings and even debts that the deceased had.
The personal representative is the one who has the legal right to deal with the estate and the process will very much depend on whether there is a Will or not and what the value of the deceased's estate is.
Amongst other things, any legal costs in dealing with the estate will be a consideration. However, it is equally important to make sure that you work with a solicitor that you find easy to deal with and who you understand.
Our highly experienced colleagues at Switalskis are here to guide you through this difficult time, in a compassionate, understanding and professional way, and to make sure that you get the right advice to be able to deal with everything as swiftly as possible.
Whether or not there is a Will, the team can advise you on your legal obligations when it comes to distributing the estate.
They can handle the process entirely, or support you through various stages – the choice is yours. Work can sometimes be carried out on a fixed fee basis, but if this cannot be offered, they will always give you an estimate of the costs at the outset so that you know where you stand.
If you would like more details about the help available, or just want a confidential chat about your options, contact us and we will ensure your enquiry reaches the right person to help you.
