In Scotland, a person responsible for administering an estate is known as an executor. Our executry solicitors based in Edinburgh and Glasgow have experience of winding up estates and can assist you with as much of the process as you require, which can take a great deal of the stress and work off your shoulders.
We understand you don’t want the burden of having to deal with all the necessary legal paperwork when you’ve just lost a loved one. There are certain legal procedures which need to be followed however, and our job is to guide you through these as quickly as we can and with the minimum of fuss.
When you come to us after someone has passed away, you’ll get the care, attention and professionalism you’d expect from a family run law firm. We will go out of our way to make things as easy as possible for you and are happy to meet wherever suits you best.
Some of the issues we can help you with include:
- Arranging the funeral
- Winding up the estate
- Grant of confirmation
- Inheritance tax
- Valuing the estate
