If you have suffered the loss of a loved one and have the responsibility of sorting out the administration of their estate then one of the first deliberations you will need to make is whether to deal with the administration of the estate yourself or whether to delegate the work to a firm of solicitors.

Before you deal with the estate administration, think carefully about whether you want to deal with this yourself, or instruct a firm of solicitors to take the stress away from you.

At an early stage it is useful to consider if you do actually want to take on the personal responsibility (including the hassle, stress and time involved) of dealing with the administration of the deceased’s estate yourself, or alternatively whether you might prefer to instruct a firm of solicitors to sort it all out for you (and therefore avoid any hassle, stress and time-consuming work).

Hassle Vs Cost

Often there are all sorts of other matters going on following the death of a loved one, not least coming to terms with the death and going through the bereavement process.  It often boils down to whether you and your family want to expose yourselves to the potential stress, hassle and time that goes with sorting out the administration of a loved one’s estate on your own. Alternatively, you and your family might prefer a firm of solicitors to sort everything out for you. You will have peace of mind knowing that all the estate administration work will be done for you quickly and correctly, without the stress and hassle, but of course with some (relatively low) legal costs.

Residence is About Physical Presence, But Domicile is a State of Mind

The question of where an individual is domiciled is often of crucial legal significance. However, as a High Court ruling in the context of an international Will dispute showed, the concept of domicile can be highly slippery and has much more to do with a person’s state of mind than it has to do with residence.

WE ARE STILL OPEN FOR BUSINESS HOWEVER, OUR FRONT DOORS WILL BE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC DURING THIS 2nd LOCKDOWN PERIOD from 5th November until further notice. For us all to be as safe as possible, our preference will be to interact with clients by telephone, email and/or zoom meetings ONLY. We would ask that if you have to drop any papers off at our offices, you use our Post Box unless you need anything copying, in those cases please knock the door and one of our receptionists will deal with you at the front door but only if you are wearing protective face coverings. If you require further assistance then a member from the relevant department will telephone you thereafter to discuss. We hope you understand that this is to safeguard you, our staff and to limit as much contact as possible. We may take a little longer to respond to enquiries and deal with matters. Please bear with us. FOR MORE INFORMATION CLICK THE BUTTON BELOW.
