    We can assist you with Estate Administration Services where you have been appointed as Executor.

    This is the process of dealing with the deceased’s estate after the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration have been obtained. The process of administering an estate can be time consuming and burdensome for a lay executor. Some people do not anticipate the amount of time it takes to carry out this task. Should the task be too complicated, troublesome and time consuming or if you simply don’t know anything about Probate, we can help.

    We do the administration process on your behalf. This will assist those who have been appointed or wish to be appointed as an executor or administrator but do not have the time, confidence or experience to complete the administration.

    We can assist with all stages of the process from Probate to the final distributions of the estate to the beneficiaries. Alternatively we can simply step in to assist the executor or administrator at any stage with the administration process.

    We’ll take on full responsibility as Executor of your Will or Administrator of your estate.

    Choosing an executor to your Will is an important decision as the role of an executor can be onerous. Generally executors are chosen because they are honest, trustworthy and experienced.

    Choosing a professional executor with specialist knowledge may be the best solution for you especially if sorting your estate is likely to be complicated – they’re experienced at the job and know their way around common administrative issues that arise. Hawksford can assist you with that role. We can take care of all the legal and administrative duties involved in becoming an executor or administrator by being named in your Will as your executor.
