Progbate and Estates

When someone close to you dies you need sympathetic ,caring and professional service which we provide for you at Chubb and Co.

We can advise you if you actually need to appoint a solicitor to deal with the estate, or if it is more appropriate for you to make a personal application for a Grant of Probate.

If you are appointed an executor of a Will then we can help and support you with your role and carry out for you the process of administering an estate.

If you are a beneficiary of an estate then we can advise you on your entitlements and will keep you fully informed of progress during the course of the administration of the estate. We can also give advice on limiting any inheritance tax liability.

If someone dies without leaving a Will, we can advise you of the rules and procedure for dealing with the estate and your entitlements.

Where inheritance tax is payable the calculation of the relevant taxes can be complicated and the reliefs that are available need to be properly claimed. Assets such as shares in family businesses, farmhouses and farmland need to be dealt with in the tax calculations to avoid overpayment. The rules which apply can sometimes be variedby agreement of the executors and beneficiaries which can lead to a tax saving.

We will help to guide you through the process of the administration and the distribution of assets, allowing you to get on with your life.
