How We Can Help
We deal with Probate and Trust administration every day and so we are not phased by any complexity which may arise, such as calculating the tax position, selling properties and managing investments amongst the other duties expected of an Executor and Trustee. By appointing us you can be confident that your belongings are in safe hands and will be dealt with correctly and efficiently.
We will relieve the burden of keeping up with ever changing current legislation and regulation, particularly the latter which is becoming more onerous and complex. In addition, we are able to provide impartiality, especially if there is any tension within your family. We always act in the best interests of the trust and all of the beneficiaries.
We manage different schemes, varying in size and value. We can also act in a variety of roles, depending on your specific governance requirements: sitting alongside other trustees, as Chair of Trustees or as sole corporate trustee. We bring a depth of experience in maintaining the appropriate level of governance in our role as trustee. We are completely independent, and therefore impartial when reaching our decisions.
We also work with a network of intermediaries, such as Estate Planners, Independent Finance Advisers, Solicitors, Tax Advisers and Will Writers providing professional and independent Trustee services to their clients.
