At BTLawyers, we understand that losing a loved one is a difficult and confusing time for family and friends. We want to make the grieving period as stress-free as possible by taking on the responsibility of administering the Estate. This ensures that you (the Executor) are provided with proper legal advice and the responsibilities of the Executor are appropriately met.
When a person passes away leaving a Will, all assets owned by the deceased vests in the Executor appointed in the Will.
When a person passes away without leaving a Will or without a valid Will, this person dies “intestate”. In accordance with the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules (“UCPR”), the person responsible to administer the Estate is usually left to the surviving spouse or children.
Whether a person passes away leaving a Will or not, there is always an Estate left to be administered. This can range from a simple Estate to a complex Estate depending on the circumstances. In our experience, this can be very overwhelming and confusing for Executors. It can also be very time consuming and emotionally draining.
BTLawyers is here to assist you with the administration of your loved one’s Estate, without the stress of incurring a large legal bill at the end of the Estate administration. We provide an initial fixed fee quote which outlines the costs from start to finish for administering the Estate. This ensures the Estate you administer will be managed effectively.
