Help with understanding a Will and carrying out a loved one’s wishes
If there’s a delay in administering a Will, it can mean that you don’t receive what is rightfully yours. As experts in estate legislation, we can help you resolve estate disputes and make sure everyone benefits according to the letter of the Will. Whatever the issue, we make sure everything is resolved quickly and cost-effectively.
- Making sure estate management goes smoothly
Sometimes the people in charge of administering an estate may disagree about what to do. Or someone might not be performing his or her duties correctly. If so, we can help you take action to make sure the estate is properly dealt with.
- Support with dealing with an estate
If you’re responsible for dealing with the estate, you might find other people are making things difficult for you. We can help you remove other executors to the Will or make a claim against one if they are not carrying out their duties correctly. We can also help you trace assets mentioned in the Will.
- Help understanding a Will for everyone’s best interests
Most people make every effort to ensure their Will reflects their wishes, but things don’t always work out this way. For instance, there might have been a mistake when the Will was written up. If so, you’ll probably want to make sure that your loved one’s estate is dealt with in the way they would have wanted. We can make sure your concerns are addressed.
- Helping resolve trust disputes
If you’re the beneficiary of a trust, you’ll want to know that the people who are looking after the money for you are doing so properly and in your best interests. If you feel a share portfolio hasn’t been well maintained, for instance, then we can help you take action. We can also help if you are a trustee and facing some challenges with trust administration.
