Family Bereavement Service Solicitors in Leeds

Your need...

You may have lost a family member, close friend or loved one. You will need expert help and guidance whether or not they left a will. It is necessary first of all to identify who the executors are or if there is no will who the administrators are. Assistance will be required in compiling a list of assets e.g. property, bank accounts, shares etc and liabilities so that the net worth of the deceased can be established. There may or may not be inheritance tax to pay. Usually it is necessary to apply for a Grant of Probate or if there is no will a Grant of Letters of Administration. Assets then need to be collected in, estate accounts prepared and monies distributed under the terms of the will or the Intestacy Rules if there is no will.
