Executry/Deceased Estates

Death can be an emotional and difficult time for all members of the family, especially those who are left to administer their loved ones estate. Whether the deceased left a Will or they died Intestate we can assist with all aspects of their estate.

Our Executry Services are available when a person has died and the estate of the deceased needs to be wound up. An estate is made up of everything the deceased owned, including their home, car, personal belongings, money, insurance policies and pensions.
A death is always emotionally tough to deal with. When someone close to you dies, we can deal with the administration of and winding up of the estate on behalf of the executors who have been appointed in the deceased’s Will. Where no Will has been left, we can apply to the court to have an executor appointed on behalf of the beneficiaries.  Our aim is to make a complicated and distressing process as straightforward as possible and less stressful for you.
We will deal with all legal matters pertaining to the estate namely obtain a Death Certificate, establish the extent of the deceased’s estate, pay any Inheritance Tax due, obtain Confirmation (we will gather a full inventory of the deceased’s assets), contact all Banks, Building Societies,  Insurance Companies, and Registrars involved, ingather the estate funds, make payment of the deceased’s debts and expenses of administration and thereafter distribute the estate in terms of the deceased’s Will or Intestate Succession. Our aim is to get the estate wrapped up in a professional and timely manner to allow closure for the loved ones of the deceased.
James Thomson & Son always offers a personal approach and once you instruct us to deal with your matter, you will be assigned a specific named person who will deal with your transaction and with you as the matter progresses. You can be confident that when you instruct us and your solicitor is unavailable for any reason, that there will be always be another team member who can help you deal with your matter as soon as possible.
