Guidance on the Most Tax Efficient Administration of the Estate

Our probate solicitors can assist you with the completion of inheritance tax forms and can provide guidance on the most tax efficient administration of the estate. We can also prepare the estate accounts which the executors are obliged to produce to beneficiaries on conclusion of the administration.


Deed of Variation

Some people may wish to consider a Deed of Variation, diverting an inheritance from their own estate to avoid further inheritance tax charges.

If you are considering a Deed of Variation, speed is of the essence so please don't hesitate to contact us.


Restructuring Estates

In conjunction with the independent financial advisors with whom we work, we can advise on the restructuring of the estate, if required.

We provide a national service to private clients via our offices in London, Watford, Bristol and Birmingham. For clients based in North Bristol, we also have a dedicated office at 106 Henleaze Road.


For estate administration advice from experienced probate solicitors, please contact Rachael Armstrong on 0121 227 3726.

Solicitors must be used to dealing with the ups and downs, chops of changes that can occur during a lifetime. It would be easy to become hardened to these things when dealing with client.... I remain all the more thankful to have been advised by a caring executor and a caring firm who have made it their business simply to meet the deceased's wishes.
