Probate and Administration of Estates

We understand that the loss of a loved one can leave those left behind feeling extremely upset, anxious and confused. We strive to offer a caring and sympathetic but practical service when administering an estate after death.

At MSD Law we can help to establish whether it is necessary to obtain a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration to allow assets to be collected and where there is a Will, distributed in accordance with the wishes of your loved ones.

We are happy to deal with as much or little of the administration as you need. Typically the administration of an estate will involve:

  • Locating and reading through the Will (if there is one)
  • Advising Executors about their powers and responsibilities
  • Collecting details of the assets of the estate, including valuations 
  • Completing and submitting inheritance tax forms
  • Applying for the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration
  • Collecting in assets
  • Paying any inheritance tax due and settling liabilities
  • Paying out gifts in accordance with the Will
  • Distributing the remaining assets
  • Preparing estate accounts

Our fees for a Grant only application start at £950.00 plus VAT and are based on around 3-4 hours work.

Our fees for a full administration depend on the complexity of the estate however are usually between £2500.00 plus VAT and £7500.00 plus VAT for estates up to £325,000.00.

We offer competitive fees and we will provide you with an estimate following an initial consultation so that you know what to expect.
