Sensitive legal support following the loss of a loved one

Executry Administration

The passing of a loved one is upsetting for those left behind - and the thought of having to deal with the often complex process of winding up the estate can be daunting.

Our executry administration team is composed of specialist solicitors and paralegals that are trained to deal with the administration of estates efficiently and sympathetically.

They aim to remove as much stress as possible for all those involved at what is always a difficult and challenging time.

Getting the best advice

Whether there is a will in place or should an estate fall to be divided in accordance with the law where there is no will (known as ‘intestacy’), our team deal with the formalities of winding up the estate as promptly as possible whilst keeping our clients regularly updated and keeping costs to a minimum.

Our lawyers are all aware of the impact an inheritance can have on the financial affairs of beneficiaries and therefore work closely with our in-house specialist independent financial advisers in order to ensure that beneficiaries are afforded the best possible advice as to the transfer, encashment and reinvestment of estate assets.

We can also assist with alterations to the expected distribution of assets. This can be simply to redress any perceived imbalances in the terms of the original will or, more generally, for tax and estate planning reasons.

Advising on your rights

Scots law provides that some individuals (spouses, children and co-habiting partners) may have certain rights in an estate, whatever the terms of a will.

Where this is the case we can provide advice with regards to legal rights, cohabitants' claims and other entitlements from estates.
