There are a number of administrative and legal matters that must be dealt with following someone’s death and these procedures can be stressful without the correct support and advice. You will need to obtain the legal rights to deal with the property, assets and possessions. This is usually done through a grant of representation – known as probate.

Many people have asked the question, “what is a Will?” You may have heard of the importance of having a Will but aren’t 100% sure what one is. Basically, a Will allows you to decide what happens to your money, property and possessions after you pass away. Your Will can also ensure that you don’t end up paying more inheritance tax than you need to.
