Estate administration is all we do, every day, and our tax and legal teams have the expertise to advise on any situation. We know how to handle intestacy, locate missing beneficiaries, deal with foreign shares and reseal a Grant of Probate. We have an abundance of experience when it comes to dealing with the DWP and HMRC.
Our sole purpose is to help families move on. We do everything in our power to support and empathise with those who entrust us to take care of their estate administration. We understand that every estate and family is different so we go the extra mile to take care of everything that's involved within the estate administration.
We’ll do everything we can to deal with the estate efficiently. We'll distribute the assets as soon as possible so you and your family receive your inheritance quickly. Wherever possible, we will make interim payments to all the beneficiaries so you don’t have to wait until the end of the process.
Over a lifetime, everyone accumulates assets and debts. As part of the estate administration process, everything has to be dealt with. Your Personal Estate Manager will handle everything on your behalf so that you have complete peace of mind.
From applying for the Grant of Probate (Confirmation in Scotland) to dealing with Inheritance Tax, estate administration involves a significant amount of legal and tax work. Our team of experts manage all of this work on your behalf. Quickly and efficiently.
Estate administration can be complex. That’s why we take on full responsibility and liability so that you don’t have to worry. We'll take care of everything you can think of and all the things you might not have considered.
The family home can be the most valuable part of an estate, financially and emotionally. To help deal with this crucial part of the estate administration, we work with specialist property partners to be able to help you achieve the best price, quickly, and to manage the legal requirements of selling or transferring a property.
Your Personal Estate Manager will deal with all of the paperwork and make the necessary calls, so you don't have to. This includes dealing with HMRC, liaising with utility providers, resolving pension enquiries and more. All of these tasks are an additional burden at a difficult time.
You'll want us to deal with the estate and distribute the assets as soon as possible. That's why we try to make initial payments to beneficiaries quickly, and at regular intervals. You and your family will receive your entitlement as soon as possible.
Our purpose is to help families move on during the difficult time of losing a loved one. We are proud to receive comments from those who entrust us to take care of the estate administration process.
An excellent professional service which took the stress away from me and my brother by having a brilliant Personal Estate Manager to deal with our mum's estate. We were updated regularly on the progress of each stage that had to be completed, and all our emails were responded to quickly. They give you a fixed fee quote to carry out the work so you know exactly how much it will cost, and their fees are very reasonable. They completed all the work a lot quicker than we thought by finalising the estate accounts and distributing the funds in less than a year (9 months to be exact).

I have asked Kings Court Trust to progress with my very complicated estate after some misinformation from the previous solicitor firm. From the beginning, the Kings Court Trust team were very professional and explained the whole process in detail. They took the time to make sure I understood it all. The price was quoted from the beginning so I knew exactly how much I am paying - all right from the beginning. No nasty surprises with unexpected bills!

We used Kings Court Trust to complete the estate administration. They provided an excellent service at a very difficult time for us, and at a reasonable price. Our Personal Estate Manager kept us regularly updated and was very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The whole thing was handled with care and understanding throughout. I would recommend them to anyone thinking of using a professional service.
