Prices start from as little as £100 plus VAT.
When a close family member or a friend who has made you Executor has died, it is a distressing and confusing time but there are things to deal with whether the estate is large or small. What needs to be done with regard to funeral arrangements? What happens to the house? Money can be tied up and there are banks, Insurance policies, care home fees and even the state to deal with regarding pensions and benefits paid to the person who has died. There might be Inheritance Tax to pay and worries about how to pay it. Our Nelson and Colne Will Solicitors offer a sympathetic helping hand and the expertise to help deal with these issues for you professionally and take some of the worries off your shoulder.
Challenging an Estate
If you aren’t the beneficiary under a will and you were dependent upon the person who has died (because you were a partner who wasn’t provided for by a will or a dependant child who wasn’t provided for by a will) you may well be able to challenge the will and we do have expertise relating to contesting wills through the courts, should the need arise.
We also deal with challenges to the validity of a Will, if there are concerns as to the state of mind of the person who made a Will because they either did not understand the nature of what they were doing or were inappropriately influence by someone.
Nelson and Colne Will Solicitors also assist in the administration of estates large and small.
If you are a beneficiary under a will and are unsure of your rights, Colne Will Solicitors may be able to help.
