Estate administration

Managing your legal and tax affairs

ABG’s specialist legal services team consists of qualified and regulated probate accountants and tax advisers. The team provide expert advice to Trusts and Executors in order to deal with all aspects of administering an Estate following a death.

Our Estates team will be able to:

  • Obtain estate values, assets and liabilities and calculate the Inheritance Tax due.
  • Provide advice on searching for lost assets, preparing oaths.
  • Ensure that all known debts and liabilities of the Estate are paid
  • Finalise the estate’s tax and arrange to distribute the residuary of the Estate.

Each case is individual and no two Estates are the same. At ABG our team will always treat it as such with empathy, care and compassion.

Our legal services team charge on a time-spent basis. This means that we will only ever charge you for work we complete on behalf of the estate and its Executors.

Free initial consultation

As with all our services we offer a complimentary initial meeting. This meeting is carried out at no cost to you. This meeting can be carried out in person, over the phone or online.

During our initial meeting we will gather the information we need to provide you with an accurate description of the work we need to carry out and an estimate of our fees.

Fee estimates

Our fees are not based on a percentage of the estate. We will always agree a fee estimate with you in advance and the fee estimate will be reviewed as your matter progresses.

If it becomes apparent during the process that more time will be needed to complete the work, we will contact you to discuss any required revision to your fee estimate before we continue to proceed.

If you wish to speak to a member of our legal services probate team please contact us on 020 7330 0000 or complete our contact form and we will revert back to you within 24 hours.
