New guide to being an executor and obtaining probate
Being an executor of someone’s estate can be particularly challenging, especially if the person who has died is a family member or loved one. At Myers & Co Solicitors in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire we are experienced in administering estates and the myriad of tasks required – from applying for probate to distributing gifts and settling inheritance tax.
To support you in your role as executor our experts have created this guide which explains everything you need to know, including:
- what happens if there is no will;
- the duties of an executor;
- how to obtain a grant of representation;
- potential pitfalls;
- possible variations to the will;
- inheriting as an executor;
- liability for mistakes; and
- refusing to act as an executor.
