Most of us are reluctant to think about the consequences of our own death, but when someone ‘dies without a will’, the legal rules of ‘intestacy’ can cause serious hardship and upset to a family. At Randle Thomas we recognise how important it is for you to know that your family and other dependents are cared for properly in the future.
With the values of homes and many insurance policies these days most of us are worth more than we think. For this reason it is important to get things done professionally. We offer private and confidential advice in relation to the drafting of Wills to ensure your wishes are catered for. We will advise on all aspects of Asset Protection.
When someone dies, it may be necessary to obtain a Grant of Probate or, if they had not made a Will, a Grant of Letters of Administration. This involves of making an application to court for the required Grant.
We can help you through this difficult process by obtaining the Grant on your behalf. We will also undertake the collection and distribution of certain assets.

We can also advise on the various Powers of Attorney that are available and the registration process.
