Administering an estate

We will advise personal representatives on their legal duties and responsibilities and beneficiaries in relation to the terms of a Will. A personal representative can be either an “executor” or “administrator”. Executors are the persons named in the will to deal with the estate. Where there is no will, however, the person is deemed to have died “intestate” and in those circumstances, one or more of the closest living relatives are entitled to deal with the estate and this person or persons are called the administrator(s). The function of the personal representative involves the protection of assets of the Estate, taking reasonable steps to secure property and valuables, arranging lists of property and valuables and arranging for valuations of property and shares etc., finding out what debts have to be paid and obtaining all other information necessary to obtain the legal documents which will allow the executor or administrator to deal with the Estate.
