Planning for the future is an extremely important aspect of life and legal practice. We have a team of Solicitors with a knowledge and understanding of the intricacies of Probate & Estate Law who are in a position to sit down with you and go through the processes with you.
In terms of Will creation, we have an initial consultation where we obtain very detailed instructions from you the client in relation to the terms of the Will to ensure there is no ambiguity with same. We provide you with a detailed understanding of the succession laws as well as discussing any possible tax implications on both the estate and the beneficiaries.
In terms of Probate, if a person dies testate, leaving a valid Will we can act on behalf of the legal personal representatives of the estate in making an application for a Grant of Probate to the Probate Office and administer the estate in line with the Testator’s instructions, or if the deceased dies intestate, without making a Will, the application is for a Grant of Administration and the estate is divided as per the Rules of Intestacy in the Succession Act 1965.
If you have substantial property in your name the importance of tax planning and making a Will becomes greater. We provide our clients with extensive advice in relation to capital acquisitions tax in order to minimize any tax liability that may result in the present or in the future for either the estate or the beneficiaries.
We also offer advice in relation to Powers of Attorney and Wards of Court applications where incapacity issues may arise in the future as well as advice in relation to the setting up of Trusts for family or loved ones.
