Estate Administration or Probate

When you make a will, the issue of who will administer a testator’s estate is something which naturally arises in discussing a Last Will and Testament. The simple truth is that a spouse and/or children may not be the best people to try to take on this arduous task. Dealing with the Probate Registry and Inland Revenue whilst trying to navigate their way around this sometimes complex area of the law is arguably not what families should be doing at the time of losing a loved one.

An Executors duties include:

  • Ensure that the wishes of the deceased as expressed in the Will are carried out.
  • Identify all the assets and claims against the estate.
  • Obtain valuations of the joint and sole assets as at the time of death.
  • Ensure that the estate of the deseased is handled efficiently and that funds and assets in the estate including businesses are properly managed.
  • Prepare tax returns for the deceased for Inheritance Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Income Tax.
  • Obtain tax clearances before distributing the estate.
  • Be responsible for settling all the debts of the estate including all taxes, this responsibility can last for 6 yrs.
  • Complete the file and relevant court forms.
  • Apply for Probate and attend a personal interview at the Probate Registry.
  • Prepare accounts for the beneficiaries and after payment of all claims, distribute the estate.
  • You cannot charge for youir time in applying for Probate unless you are acting in a professional capacity.
