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. Farnfields Solicitors can guide you through the right steps for estate administration and planning.
When death happens, the assets of the deceased are distributed. This is made simple where a well-drafted and up-to-date will is in place. Where there is no will or what is drafted is not legally valid, this requires an administrator. Often, this is the next of kin. If this is you, you are required to distribute the assets in accordance with the relevant laws.
At Farnfields Solicitors, we advise you how to do this. We can deal with your questions – we have some of the best lawyers in the UK. In some circumstances, you may ask us to act as the estate administrator. Whatever your situation, we can guide you through the process. We keep things simple. We promise to keep in regular contact with you and will always use plain English.
If you need support administering an estate and you are not sure what to do, contact Farnfields Solicitors to give you the answers or have a read through our leaflet or watch the video below outlining some options for you to consider.
