Probate & Estate Administration

Why choose Rix & Kay’s dedicated probate team?

Our large Probate Team has many years specialist experience in assisting executors and trustees in a sensitive and efficient way. We handle matters ranging from the very straightforward to highly complex multi-million pound estates.

At the outset a dedicated probate executive is assigned to each client to guide them through the whole probate process and to call in the expertise of other specialist staff members as and when required.  These can include the lawyers from our Wills and Estate Planning Team, to cover tax and trust issues, our Residential Property Team, for property sales, and our Contentious Probate Team, in the case of disputes.

Our aim is to help our clients complete the administration of the estate as quickly and efficiently as possible while avoiding the difficulties and pitfalls that can arise on the way.

We have a very flexible approach to our services and we leave our clients to choose how much, or how little, they wish to make use of our expertise. Our charging basis reflects this flexibility.
