Probate has become the term commonly associated with handling an individual's estate after they've died but it is just one component of administering an estate. Estate administration is so much more. It’s the process of sorting out a deceased person’s legal and tax affairs. Everything from bank accounts, belongings and property to debts, pensions and Inheritance Tax.
Whether their estate is simple or complex, the issues faced with the death of a loved one are rarely straightforward. That’s why Jacobsen Black Legal Services Ltd has partnered with Kings Court Trust, our preferred provider of estate administration, to deliver an estate administration service.
Your Will is the most important document you will ever make and what do you do with it once you've signed it needs careful consideration. By choosing to store your Will and legal documents in a secure storage facility provides peace of mind. Countess wills are damaged lost or accidentally destroyed every year causing untold issues for those left behind when trying to obtain probate and administer the estate.
Trusts have been around since medieval times and are used to protect family assets and for minimising potential tax liability on future generations.
