The Cohen Cramer inheritance team has a breadth of experience of handling deceased’s estates and all the ad hoc issues that come with it and our promise to you is to provide sensitivity and compassion whilst working hard to get the jobs done as quickly as possible.

We can help you with:

Obtaining a Grant of Probate

If property was held in the deceased’s sole name or their assets are worth more than £5,000 or a financial institution is  refusing to deal with you until you have the relevant authority then you are likely to need to make an application to the Probate Registry.

  • Making an application for a ‘Grant of Probate’ which will give you the authority to act.
  • Advising you on your duties as named Executors in a Will and guiding you through the process.
  • Calculating and arranging the payment of inheritance tax.

Administration of the Estate 

We can be instructed to step into the shoes of an Executor or simply be instructed to assist the Executors in administering the estate which can include:

  • Tracing and collecting in all money and assets.
  • Communicating with all entitled beneficiaries.
  • Preparing Estate Accounts.
  • Paying all relevant debts correctly.
  • Dealing with any technical issues that may arise.
  • Distributing the estate.
