Dealing with probate for an overseas executor

Sarah was instructed to act on the probate administration of the estate of a lady that had died in Warwickshire and whose son, and executor, lived in New Zealand.

Sarah dealt with all of the administrative matters ensuring that the executor could sign the papers when he returned to the UK for his mother's funeral. The grant of probate was secured very quickly and the executor did not have to be concerned that these matters were not being dealt with. 

Dealing with probate and estate administration can be dealt with remotely, taking all of the strain off the executors.

I just wanted to thank you for your work in winding up my mother's estate. From my point of view it went very smoothly and I felt we were in safe hands.
