Michael Duff Lawyers


The loss of a loved one brings many problems, both emotional and financial, and it is vital to seek the help and assistance you require at the earliest possible opportunity.

When a person dies his or her assets must be gathered in and then distributed to the beneficiaries. The executor is responsible for this and it is essential to obtain confirmation through the Sheriff Court unless the estate falls under the ‘small estate’ rules. In the case of a small estate currently under £30,000, an optional simplified confirmation procedure is available.

The winding up of an estate can be a complex operation and requires both time and expertise, and in the majority of cases it is wise to take expert legal advice. We administer the Executory Company Limited, a specialist company which can provide help and assistance with the gathering and distribution of the estate, and the payment of all creditors and taxes.
