Probate & Estates
On death, the executors named in the Will of the deceased (or the chosen administrators where there is no Will) are responsible for dealing with the administration of the estate, which includes implementing the provisions of the Will. In most cases it is necessary to obtain a grant of representation to formalise the appointment of the executors.
The role of executor can include registering the death, organising the funeral, ascertaining details of the deceased’s assets and liabilities, calculating and settling all tax liabilities (including the preparation and submission of inheritance tax forms), encasing and transferring assets and accounting to the beneficiaries.
Warners have considerable experience in this area and are more than happy to help to the extent required.
