When someone dies it is never easy to cope. Even though you may not feel up to dealing with their affairs, it is something that has to be done. At Walter Gray and Co we have an experienced team to help lift that burden, providing you with support at a difficult time.
We can also help with other matters relating to later life and Elder Client affairs.
Our services include:
We can help with obtaining the grant of Probate (or Letters of Administration in the event that there is no Will), gathering in the assets of the estate and administering them according to the Will or Intestacy. We can also act as Executors if you want us to and in cases where a trust may arise under the provisions of a Will or Intestacy we can help with the set up and ongoing maintenance of the trust.
Wills are generally provided on a fixed fee basis, however we often run charitable will promotions throughout the year which benefit various charities. We usually recommend that clients review their wills approximately every five years or if there is a major alteration to their family or financial circumstances.
