Compassion and understanding is a hallmark of our Probate and Administration service.

After a death the role of dealing with all the necessary legal and financial formalities normally falls to whomever has been named as an Executor in the deceased’s Will. If the deceased did not make a Will the role of dealing with the necessary legal and financial paperwork is determined in accordance with certain inheritance rules and it is usually the spouse or child(ren) of the deceased. The individual who is then required to deal with the deceased’s estate becomes known as an administrator or executor.
