Wills and Probate

We offer a full range of services for both individuals and Trustees. It is essential that you have a Will if you want to arrange what happens to your property after you die. Without one the state directs who inherits and this may not be the way you would want things to be. If you are not married or not in a registered civil partnership the law does not recognise cohabitants as having the same rights as a spouse. If you have children or dependents who rely on you, a will enables you to provide for them.

We can assist you in you in the following areas:

• Preparation of Wills and Advance Directives (Living Wills)
• Administration of Estates including 
• Interpreting the Will of the deceased in terms of estate laws
• Advising executors and trustees in regard to their duties and rights
• Informing government bodies
• Applying for Probate of the Will
• Dealing with intestacy (where there is no Will)
• Identifying estate assets and liabilities
• Obtaining valuations of estate property
• Collecting estate financial assets
• Selling or transferring estate property including estate auctions
• Paying estate debts including mortgages, funeral costs, and testamentary expenses
• Distributing bequests and inheritances to beneficiaries
• Organising information for estate tax returns
