estate administration

The death of a loved one is an emotional and upsetting time, without the added complication of managing the paperwork of the deceased. At Watson Thomas, we aim to remove the burden of the paperwork from you, leaving you to concentrate on your family. 

In most cases, a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration will need to be obtained. A Grant of Probate is obtained where there is a Will and Letters of Administration are obtained if there is no Will. The Grant of Probate and Letters Administration both enable the Executor or Administrator to gather in the assets to the Estate and distribute them in accordance with the terms of the deceased’s Will.

At Watson Thomas, we can assist you as much or as little as is required. We can offer a comprehensive service from arranging the funeral and house clearance/sale through to distribution of the Estate, or we can simply help you make the application for the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration. Whatever the Service you require, we will always offer clear fees and guidance so as to make matters as easy as possible for you at this time.
