What is an executor and what do they do?
Executors are the people you appoint in your Will to deal with the administration of your estate after your death.
Your chosen executors will have a very arduous job ahead of them, administrating a person's estate is by no means a small feat. Settling an estate carries considerable responsibilities which can often be complicated, difficult and time-consuming.
Whoever is responsible will have a wide range of duties and the legal right to administer your estate. They will also have to work out the amount of inheritance tax owed on the estate and prepare the tax return to pay it. A professional executor can be appointed to take on these duties.
Why use a professional executor?
An independent professional executor will ensure the instructions set out in your will are followed, which can be complex and time consuming.
Appointing a professional to deal with your estate can ease the pressure on loved ones at a difficult time.
Inheritance tax may be payable on your estate. The rules are quite complicated, but our professional executor service will help to ensure that the correct amount is paid and they will administer your estate in the most tax efficient way.
What is probate?
It is a legal document that will give the executors of the will the relevant authority to deal with the assets and carry out the wishes of the loved one who has sadly passed away.
How does it work?
The process of Probate can vary from case to case and can be extremely difficult to carry out, because every will and the assets within are different. Simpwill have appointed the very best in probate professionals to handle the administration of your estate.
What can we offer?
We will deal with the estate from start to finish; establish the assets and liabilities; obtain the Grant of Probate; settle any taxes due; encash or transfer assets including property; settle any debts; make payments to beneficiaries; and prepare the estate accounts.
