Estate administration

Upon the death of a relative, administering their estate is an important step that needs to be undertaken. In some circumstances, this is more difficult because there is no will or it is somehow invalid. QualitySolicitors can guide you through what the right steps are in your specific circumstances.

When a death happens, the assets of the deceased are then distributed. This is made simple when there is a well drafted and up-to-date will that has been put in to place. Where there is no will or when the will that has been drafted is not legally valid, this will then require an administrator. Often, this is the next of kin. If this is you, you are then required to distribute the assets in accordance with the relevant laws.

At QualitySolicitors, we can advise you how to do this. We can deal with your questions – we have some of the best lawyers in the UK. In some circumstances, you may ask us to act as the estate administrator. Whatever your situation, we are able to guide you through the process. We keep things simple for you. We promise to keep in regular contact with you and will always use plain English.
