Expert solicitors to help guide you through your executry duties

When a loved one passes away, it is understandable that dealing with the complex legal procedures involved in disposing of their estate is the last thing on your mind. However, there are numerous steps that need to be taken, from paying the inheritance tax liability and applying to the court for permission to ingather the deceased’s estate to settling any debts and ensuring the remaining assets are distributed correctly.

Every executry is unique and there may be further complicating matters such as overseas assets, inheritance disputes or the absence of a Will.

We can help guide you through this complex area of law. Using specialist solicitors and paralegals, we can ensure momentum is maintained and the administration is completed as efficiently as possible. This takes at least six months (and often a lot longer) and there are periods where things can seem stalled, so we make sure we communicate with you at every stage.

Our sensitive and effective executry service is available at all of our three offices. No matter the size or complexity of the estate, we will clearly explain all the steps that need to be taken, offer expert advice and guidance, and help you complete the administration process as smoothly as possible.

What our clients say

  • Peter Hunt

“…our dealings with you were second to none. We very much appreciate your involvement in our affairs during the early stages of the COVID lockdown and would have no hesitation in utilising your services, should they be required again in the future.”

  • David Kinnon

“For some eight months, I have tried in vain to complete Wills, Power of Attorney and Trust arrangements on behalf of my wife and myself. I approached a small number of law firms including Gilson Gray. The swift and perceptive response of the team readily persuaded me to engage with Gilson Gray. The team saw the process quickly underway, with off queries efficiently ironed out in direct contact with my independent financial advisors. Gilson Gray handled the matter expertly from start to finish. The documentary process is now complete and I strongly recommend this firm’s services, both to those with a clear view of the process and to those who are hesitant of what may be entailed.
