Probate & Estate Administration
The issues following the loss of someone close can be difficult and at times confusing. At such a time, you can look to your friends and relatives for comfort and to Higgs & Sons to offer guidance through the practical process of administering the estate.
We recognise that immediately after a death, simple but practical advice is needed to avoid problems occurring or unwise action being taken. As specialists in dealing with the on-going management of a loved one's financial affairs we will ensure that all matters are taken care of in a clear and professional manner.
Our full service estate administration includes completing all formalities that arise under the will (where one exists), completing HM Revenue & Customs accounts for inheritance tax, obtaining the grant of probate, encashing or transferring assets as appropriate, settling debts, completing estate accounts and making distributions whilst ensuring full liaison with the family and beneficiaries throughout, providing a clear and personal service.
We also recognise that sometimes families want to administer very straightforward estates themselves, but would like to have the comfort and reassurance of having a professional in the background. We are happy to provide help and guidance on any step of the estate administration process; for straightforward estates we can obtain the Grant of Probate quickly and efficiently to allow you to get on with administering the estate.
Our experience and professional approach provides clear and firm advice at a time when it is needed most.
