Bereavement Services

Waddington and Son have a bereavement team that can take the burden off family members by attending to the necessary legal procedures involved in administering a person’s state.

We can assist with as little or as much as you may require from us. We can advise you on the effect of the will or the intestacy where there is no will. We can guide you through some of the following steps;

  • Obtaining probate or letters of administration
  • Putting together a picture of the deceased’s estate by obtaining valuations of assets and details of all liabilities
  • Attend to any trust matters that may arise under a will or as a result of an intestacy if there is no will
  • Settle the deceased tax affairs to the date of death and settle the tax for the administration period
  • Prepare a set of Estate accounts
  • Settle liabilities and distribute according to the will/intestacy

If you would like to talk to someone about a bereavement and what steps to take, then please contact Burnley 01282 426666, or Blackburn 01254 913203 or email enquiries@waddingtonandson.co.uk and one of our team will be only too willing to help you.
