Once a loved one has passed on, their money, property and possessions (their Estate) that is left behind needs to be administered efficiently and with sympathy. Carr & Co’s team of expert probate solicitors can help you through this time of emotional distress by providing a comprehensive, understanding and personal service.

After death, the deceased’s estate needs to be dealt with, their debts settled, and the remaining assets need to be distributed to those entitled to receive them.

Carr & Co can assist with important tasks when the family is unable to, such as arranging the funeral.

We can also contact banks, building societies, insurance companies, government departments and other creditors on behalf of the deceased and family.

Carr & Co will also calculate any inheritance tax and income tax payable as well as deal with any property and shares that may need to be valued and sold.

If the deceased left a Will, then the people named by the deceased to handle the Estate (the Executors) apply for Grant of Probate.

If there is no Will, then relatives of the deceased apply for Grant of Letters of Administration.

Once either of the above has been obtained then the executors/relatives can collect and distribute the assets to those legally entitled.

We provide guidance and assistance in ensuring the executors/relatives comply with their legal duties in preparing and applying for Probate or Letters of Administration.

Carr & Co offer safe and sound advice to those who require assistance in making a Will or dealing with an Estate after death.
