Probate and Estate Administration services

Relieving the heavy burden of administering an estate.

Administering an estate can be complex, overwhelming and daunting for you if you are unfamiliar with the process, particularly if you have just lost a loved one.

ZEDRA’s experienced team has the necessary expertise to handle all aspects of estate administration:

  • As the professional Executor named in the Will.
  • By assisting the individual Executors or administrators.

You should consider the appointment of a professional executor if your estate is complex, an impartial administration would be beneficial or it might be too much to ask of a friend or family member.

Our Services:

As professional Executor named in the Will:

  • 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.

Our Estate Assistance Service typically covers three areas but we can do as much or as little as is required:

  • Obtaining the Grant of Representation (probate).
  • Encashing the assets and settling the liabilities, including inheritance tax.
  • Preparing the estate accounts.

Comfort that the estate is in safe hands at a difficult time.

By allowing you to:

  • Have an independent and impartial professional deal with the administration and beneficiaries.
  • Deal with complex estates where there are inheritance tax liabilities, claims or just matters that you might not be comfortable dealing with.
  • Avoid personal liabilities and responsibilities of making mistakes as Executor.
  • Run searches to find lost or forgotten about assets in bank accounts, pensions or insurance policies.
  • Ensure that the Executor is acting on the latest Will.
  • Have continuity of service if appointing us as Executor as individuals might die, lose mental capacity or no longer wish to be appointed.
