Upon the death of a relative, administering their Estate is an important step to undertake. In some circumstances, this is more difficult because there is no Will or it is somehow invalid. Burn & Co Solicitors can guide you through the right steps.

When a death happens, the assets of the deceased need to be distributed. If a well drafted and up-to-date Will is in place, then the process will hopefully be quite simple for the Trustees or Executors named in the Will. Where there is no Will or what is drafted is not legally valid, an administrator is required and they are often the next of kin. If this is you, you are required to distribute the assets in accordance with the relevant laws.

At Burn & Co Solicitors, we can advise you which process you have to follow and the different steps you will have to take. We can deal with whatever questions you may have. In some circumstances, you may ask us to act as the Estate Administrator and oversee the process from start to finish, including making initial contact with the various organisations where the Deceased had savings or investments.

Whatever your situation, we can guide you through the process and keep you informed at every stage. We keep things simple to understand. We promise to keep in regular contact with you and will always use plain English.

If you need support administrating an estate and you aren’t sure what to do, let Burn & Co Solicitors guide you through the process.
