WHAT IS PROBATE ?
Helping Executors in Estate Administration
Probate can be a very complex process, and unfortunately those named as Executors are not necessarily up to the task of handling the entire Estate Administration without assistance.
Winding up a person's estate after they have died is not something to be undertaken lightly or without some experience. Here at Newlife Wills, we can assist you in the administration of the deceased's estate.
Putting affairs in order after a loved one's death can be a daunting task, accounting for all property, assets and investments as well as all debts and liabilities, addressing the matter of inheritance tax, the guardianship of children (or even animals) and distribution of bequests to all named beneficiaries.
It is not something any individual should try to tackle alone - but don't worry, we're here to help!
The good news is that we can offer whatever level of assistance is needed to help you put the affairs of the deceased in order, whether that be a complete Probate and Administration service or simply providing advice and assistance on completion of forms or on specific aspects of the administration.

Looking for help with the Probate process?
If you feel you want to use a specialist such as ourselves, or are dealing with a particularly complicated estate, we're here to help you through what can seem a daunting process.
Here are some reasons why you might want to use us as your probate specialist:
The value of the estate is over the inheritance tax threshold and the estate is still earning a regular income where there are complicated taxes due.
The deceased died without a will, and it's a complicated estate to administer.
There are doubts about the validity of the will.
The deceased had dependants who were deliberately left out of the will, but who might want to make a claim on the estate.
The estate has complex arrangements, such as assets held in a trust.
The estate is bankrupt (also known as insolvent).
There are doubts that the estate is bankrupt.
The estate includes foreign property or assets.
The deceased lived outside the UK for tax purposes.
