The typical steps a simple administration case would inculde are, but not limited to:

  • Experienced solicitor dealing with your matter and advising and assisting each step of the way;
  • Obtain probate values for all assets and liabilities;
  • Preparing and submitting probate applications and any relevant tax forms;
  • Dealing with all corresspondences in and out, postage and all telephone calls;
  • Arranging relevant notices;
  • Closing all accounts and collecting monies in;
  • Paying all liabilities from monies collected in;

  • Preparing Estate and Division accounts detailing monies in and out the estate;
  • Distributing the estate.

 

You will be advised of any disburstments costs from the outset.  These will depend on the circumstances of the case.

It would typically take 6-12 months to administer a simple estate, however, this is very much dependent on third parties coming back to us in a timely manner.  You would be advised of a likely timescale at the outset of the matter as this varies on a case by case basis.

The department is headed up by Fatima Musa, Solicitor who has considerable experience in this area.  Fatima is supervised by Shabaz Hussain, Solicitor and Director.  From the outset, you will be provided with a breakdown of the charging rate for the person dealing with your matter.
