Dealing with the estate of a loved one is a very hard thing to contemplate, but it is a very important process that needs to be undertaken.
Here at Rubin Lewis O’Brien we take the time to help with the process in a caring and empathetic manner.
One of the first steps to take is determining whether there is a Will. If there is, then this will appoint Executors to deal with the administration of the estate and will detail who the beneficiaries are and what they will receive. If there is no Will, then the law says who can deal with the administration, and the law says who will receive a share of the estate.
Sometimes, there is a Will but there are some issues to deal with such as beneficiaries who have died, property that was not owned by the deceased or other issues such as a missing or incomplete Will.
Our specialist lawyers can guide you through the processes involved in administering an estate swiftly, efficiently and in a cost-effective way. We can do as little or as much of the administration for you as you want us to, and we will always seek to keep in regular contact and without using baffling legal jargon.
