Probate and administration of estates

When you’ve suffered a bereavement it can be hard to cope with the practical aspects and paperwork, as well as the emotional loss. The Head Partnership can take care of the administration of the estate for you by collecting all the information needed, preparing the application for probate, and dealing with the transfer of property and the distribution of the deceased’s estate.

All probate matters are dealt with sympathetically and efficiently and we can also advise on post-death variations and the establishment of Trusts to minimise Inheritance Tax liability and to protect money on behalf of minors or other vulnerable beneficiaries.

In some cases it may not even be necessary to apply for a Grant of Probate, depending on how the deceased’s property is held, so please do contact us for a free initial consultation to help you decide how best to proceed.

We will project manage the administration of the estate, or help with DIY probate. We will do as much or as little as you want, and will only ever charge for the time we spend helping you, rather than a fixed percentage of the estate to be administered.
