Estate Administration

Brewer Harding & Rowe deal with a large share of probate and estate administration in North Devon. We advise on all aspects and can tailor our service to suit and assist your needs at this difficult time.

What if there is no Will?

If a person dies without leaving a Will they have died Intestate and their belongings and possessions i.e. Estate may not pass entirely to the surviving partner or children. We can advise on the complex intestacy rules. If you do not wish your Estate to pass under the Intestacy Rules then it is important to make a Will setting out your wishes. This is especially important for unmarried couples or those with step children.

What to do first?

When someone dies it is important to speak to a Solicitor as soon as possible. The members of our Probate Team are qualified, experienced and sensitive and be contacted out of hours with any urgent queries you may have
