Case Studies

Estate Administration – discontinued Probate Registry

We have been instructed to draft Court paperwork for consideration by a judge in a Chancery Probate Registry. This contained an application to dicontinue a Caveat entered at the Probate Registry by someone who wanted to block the administration of the estate.

Returns on assets – Estates and inheritance tax

We regularly complete on complex returns of assets where claims for unused percentages of nil rate bands, residence nil rate band and reduced rates of inheritance tax due to charitable giving are all required.

Court of Protection

We have recently applied to the Court of Protection for the appointment of a Co-Deputy where the main Deputy has become frail and unwell. As a result of this type of work, our solicitors regularly give talks in conjunction with Age Concern.
