Did you know that instructing a solicitor to administer your loved one’s estate could save you money?

Using a solicitor to administer your loved one’s estate could prove to be beneficial in more ways than one.  Not only are we here to meet your emotional needs but also to help with your financial situation, inheritance tax and even saving you money!

We know that losing your dearest loved ones is one of the hardest things to deal with.  That's why we are here to take away the burden of dealing with mundane paperwork, liaising with all those organisations who would otherwise be writing to you or your dearly departed and leaving you to deal with what you know best - your family.

There is no need for you to be worried about inheritance tax and trying to sort out probate – that’s what our expert Private Client solicitors are trained to do.  Instead you can concentrate on your loved ones and make sure that they are looked after.

Even if your loved one didn’t get around to making a Will and you don’t know where to start, there is no need to worry, we can make sure the right people inherit as they should!

What if there is a Will with trusts involved? Or beneficiaries under the age of 18 years?

No situation is new to us and we can help you to resolve any difficulties that you may think are insurmountable.

Our specialist team are able to claim any relevant allowances and look at other ways to reduce your inheritance tax liability.  Did you know that there is a possibility that a million pounds can now be passed to your beneficiaries before any tax is payable at all!

Not only can we sort out any payment of inheritance tax, we can also mitigate other tax for you, such as Capital Gains Tax (CGT).  You may not know that when somebody dies, there is an administration tax period which needs to be finalised.  If any chargeable assets are sold at a gain meaning that capital gains tax is payable, we are able to potentially reduce the amount of CGT that the estate pays allowing your beneficiaries to inherit more. 

We are experienced in knowing when penalties may be payable and can often find ways for you to avoid paying more than you need to – again ensuring that your loved one’s wealth is more easily distributed throughout your family.

Not only that but we can also protect you from any future claims or disputes and deal with awkward relatives or disgruntled beneficiaries on your behalf. We know that there is nothing worse than the loss of a loved one turning into a battle over money! 

At Parfitt Cresswell Solicitors our team of expert, experienced and caring Wills and Probate solicitors are able to do all of this without you needing to leave your home so that you can concentrate on the important things. 

With our video and telephone conference call facilities we are able to arrange video calls with you when necessary to keep you up to date and you can relax in the knowledge that your loved one’s affairs are in safe hands.
