General Administration of Estates & Trusts

Stephenson Burns Solicitors can provide all necessary legal services to Legal Personal Representatives and/or trustees and beneficiaries.

We deal with all aspects of the Administration of a deceased's estate from preparing and filing the Inland Revenue Affidavit and all the papers necessary to obtain a Grant of Representation, dealing with all taxes arising both pre and post death, through to the final distribution/vesting the assets of the estate in the beneficiaries and the preparation of estate accounts.

We can also advise, where appropriate, on how to vary the provisions of the deceased's will or the effect on the distribution of the deceased's estate under the laws of intestacy by use of Deeds of Disclaimers and/or Deeds of Family Arrangement and Variation of Trusts.

Further, we can offer independent legal advice to beneficiaries and/or the surviving legal spouse/civil partner/co-habitant who are unsure of their legal position.

In addition, we can advise Legal Personal Representatives or beneficiaries on disputes arising from contested wills or disputes arising during the administration of an estate including, but not exclusively; challenges to  the validity of a will due to incapacity, undue influence and/or fraud, inadequate provision by a parent for their child and mal-administration of an estate.

As we have developed highly efficient systems to streamline the necessary processes, Stephenson Burns Solicitors can typically obtain a Grant of Representation within approximately three months from instructions and complete the administration (provided there is no litigation arising) within approximately six months.
