Sarah specialises in the administration of taxable and non-taxable estates.

Experience

  • Acted for an executor, who lived in New Zealand, to obtain a Grant of Probate and to deal with the assets n respect of his mother who had died in the UK. Estate administration was completed via email so that he could sign and swear the probate papers upon his return for the funeral.  The application for the Grant of Probate was issued and received  within 4 days which enabled him to dispose of her assets and still return to New Zealand as planned.
  • Acted for executors who did not live local to the deceased.  Provided a complete service which included dealing with all aspects of probate and obtaining details of the financial assets. In order to make the deceased's property ready for sale on behalf of the executor, we arranged the cleaning of the property, organised a gardener, coordinated the valuation, cleared/ sold personal chattels and instructed & liaised with an estate agent. 

Thank you for the professional, courteous and timely manner in which you have dealt with this potentially complicated and difficult matter. It has all ways been a pleasure to correspond and you have all ways made things straight forward for me to understand and deal with.
