Dealing with the death of a loved one
Stepping into the role of executor following the death of a loved one can present onerous and bewildering practical obligations at a time when we are least able, emotionally, to cope with this.
Finding, following the death of a friend or a loved one, that they left no Will, adds an extra layer of practical difficulty.
Our experienced team of probate and estate administration lawyers can provide whatever level of help you need at this very difficult time.
Whether you have been appointed as an executor in a Will or whether a family member or friend has died with no Will, we can help you navigate through what can be a very stressful and challenging time.
We can help you at the outset to apply for a Grant of Probate where you have been appointed as an executor or for a Grant of Letters of Administration where there is no executor appointed or no Will. We can advise you on the intestacy provisions or on the terms of a Will. Or we can take on the burden of the entire process, from obtaining the Grant to collecting in and administering the estate assets in accordance either with the terms of the Will or the intestacy rules.
The level of help you would like from us is entirely up to you. Our team members all have experience of helping people at very difficult times in their lives and whatever level of help you choose, we are committed to delivering to you a sensitive and personal service.

As the government begin to ease lockdown measures, we have setup a new COVID Secure team to review how clients can resume visiting our office when required, safely. The team has also reviewed how Cartwright King employees can return to the office safely so that business can return to normal as possible. Should you wish to book an appointment with one of our legal representatives and visit our office, you will be prompted to read our new office guidance notes which must be read and understood before visiting.

We have also created a Know Your Rights page which has all the latest information surrounding your legal rights amidst the Coronavirus outbreak.
