Welcome to our Estate Issues section. In this section we hope to bring you sound, practical guidance for settling an estate. Here you will find a growing list of legal issues to consider before and after the death.
However, we do not wish to suggest that you do not require a solicitor, nor are we attempting to substitute for sound legal advice. When in doubt, consult with a lawyer on estate matters - in the end it could save you money! Any honest, credible lawyer will be straight-forward and tell you what you need to know. If there are things you can do yourself, or if the estate does not require a solicitor, they will let you know. A good lawyer will not charge you for services your do not need, but can be far less expensive than potentially costly mistakes if you do it all yourself.
If you do not have a lawyer, or are unsure of where to turn, please feel free to give us a call. We have dealings with many law firms in town, and can make some helpful suggestions.
