Probate and estate administration
We all know that the death of a loved one can be a difficult time for the family and friends left behind, and so the task of administering the deceased’s estate at that time is often an unwelcome one.
Not all estates are complex, but depending on the circumstances, this can be a time-consuming, challenging and onerous task. Even where matters are more straightforward, it is often reassuring to have a helping hand, and to know that you are doing everything correctly.
At Gordons we are handling the administration of estates on a daily basis, ranging from the straightforward to the highly complex, and can help you as much or as little as you want. We also have a specialist Contentious Wills and Probate team dealing with disputes in relation to Wills and estates. If you would like more information about our services, or simply more information about the probate process, please get in touch by telephone (0113 227 0298) or email, initial consultations are free of charge.
