How long does it take?

How long does it take?

It is extremely difficult to put any accurate time estimate on dealing with an estate. It depends on the size of the estate and how much work is involved to administer it properly.  It is not unusual for it to take up to a year, perhaps longer if there are complicated areas.

How we can help

Even if you are named as an executor or are entitled to act as an administrator you can still instruct us to take over the administration of the estate for you.

We can assist in:

Identifying and writing to creditors and debtors
Dealing with the funeral directors and the Beneficiaries
Valuing the deceased’s estate for Probate purposes
Completing of the Inheritance Tax Account Forms
Calculating the Inheritance Tax due

Advise you of the best ways of arranging for the Inheritance Tax to be paid, which often means an application to the deceased’s bank or building society if there are sufficient funds available

Prepare the Oath for Executors or Administrators and other paperwork for the Probate Registry
Once the Grant has been extracted we can distribute the estate and account to the Beneficiaries

We hope this gives you some better understanding of the steps that need to be undertaken after someone dies.  Our aim is to ensure that the stress factor that so often occurs when administering the estate is alleviated as much as possible. We offer compassionate and sympathetic advice to ensure that the process from start to finish is dealt with in the most efficient manner possible.
