Finding tailor made solutions for all your legal challenges

Probate Solicitors in Richmond, Surrey

Obtaining Probate can often be a confusing and daunting process for clients and we ensure that an estate is administered on a one to one basis; with compassion as well as efficiency. We provide advice with understanding and sensitivity when winding up and administrating estates. We can establish whether it is necessary to obtain a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration to allow assets to be collected and distributed in accordance with the wishes of the deceased.

We can offer as little or as much assistance as you would like, from simply assisting with completion of the Inheritance Tax papers and Probate application, to dealing with the whole process for you.  We are able to assist with all sizes of estates.

As well as dealing with Probate application and estate administration, we can also offer expert advice on more complex areas of estate administration, including:

  • International aspects of the deceased’s affairs (such as assets held abroad)
  • Post-death tax reduction, including deeds of variation
  • Establishing and winding up discretionary trusts in wills following the introduction of the transferable nil-rate band

We also have a dedicated Residential Conveyancing team, which can assist in the legalities of selling any property in the estate.

If you would like assistance with any of the above or if you have any queries in relation to the estate administration process, please contact Philippa Byam-Cook on 0208 332 7532 or by email on
