Upon the death of a relative, administering their Estate is an important step to undertake. In some circumstances, this is more difficult because there is no Will or it is somehow invalid. Blacklaw will guide you through what the right steps are.
When a loved one dies, the assets of the deceased need to be distributed. This is made simple where there is a well drafted and up-to-date Will in place. Where there is no Will or what is drafted is not legally valid, this requires an administrator. Often, this is the next of kin. If this is you, you are required to distribute the assets in accordance with the relevant laws.
At Blacklaw, we advise you how to do this. You may ask us to act as the Estate Administrator in accordance with the Administration of Estates Act 1925.
Whatever your situation, we can guide you through the process. We keep things simple. We promise to keep in regular contact with you and will always use plain English.
If you need support administrating an Estate and you aren’t sure what to do, let Blacklaw help.
