Druces Private Wealth

Probate & Estate Administration

Dealing with the affairs of someone who has died can be a complex process. The extent of their assets and liabilities must be ascertained; the tax position must be resolved and, ultimately, the net estate has to be distributed, either to the beneficiaries named in the Will or in accordance with the Intestacy Rules.

Every estate is unique. We have a wealth of experience in guiding executors and bereaved families through the administration process, including for estates which cross borders, with assets overseas as well as in the UK. We also have a particular expertise when it comes to France. Our team includes dual qualified advisers and we are able to assist with French probate matters and deal with the sale of French property.
