Administrations of estates UK - Estate Administration
Easylawyers can advise you on all aspects of estate administration. We will be able to work with executors and beneficiaries of the will throughout the probate process to ensure the assets are identified, any claims on the estate are established, taxes are paid and that the assets are correctly distributed among the beneficiaries. Where there is no will, we will advise on the laws of intestacy and will still be able to administer the estate.
When someone has passed away, the last thing you need is more stress and hassle of dealing with probate. Our probate solicitor will take all the worry off your hands, and make everything easier, including handling the complex issues of Inheritance Tax and handlings the sale of any property that is going to be sold.
When a person dies, even if their affairs are very straightforward, it will usually be necessary for their executors to obtain a grant of probate, finalise their tax position, ensure no unexpected creditors can make a claim against the deceased, then put the provisions of the deceased's Will into force.

Guaranteed Probate Fixed-Fee Quotation
People need certainty when it comes to the issue of legal fees. We provide our service on a fixed fee for non-contentious probate applications. Many probate solicitors are reluctant to provide a fixed fees price quotation (claiming the matter is too complex).
Easylawyers will give you an accurate fixed-fee estimate before you commit yourself. These fees do not apply if the estate is contested (this means simply if someone disputes the will). If a house has to be sold our normal conveyancing charges apply. In addition it does not include tracing lost beneficiaries.
