In what ways might you benefit from our new service?

  • To instruct Lentells to deal with the administration of your estate is the logical conclusion to all the life-time planning carried out on your behalf. In many cases, you have already benefitted from a close working relationship with Lentells where you have received advice on succession planning, Will planning, IHT mitigation and how to pass on your wealth in a tax efficient manner.
  • Having handled your financial affairs over a number of years, you, and often other family members, have established a relationship with Lentells based on genuine understanding and trust. You can now be sure that your trusted professional can provide a sympathetic and cost effective service during a time of bereavement and the stresses that this inevitably produces.
  • So much of the vital information that is required in obtaining probate and dealing with the administration of an estate is already available to Lentells if you are an existing client. This saves considerable time in drawing up and valuing the assets and liabilities as at the date of death and this in-depth knowledge and understanding of your financial affairs is of considerable help to those nearest and dearest to you.
  • More of your estate can pass to your family and other beneficiaries because we understand the background and do not need to spend time and money getting up to speed. Our charging structure is simple and straightforward with no hidden extras. We charge on a time basis taking into account the complexity of the work required and because we understand that you will want to know the extent of the costs, we can agree a cap with you.
  • Choosing who to act as your executors is often one of the most difficult choices that you have to make in drawing up or amending your Will.  If you have no-one who you feel able to appoint in this important legal role, you can now appoint Lentells who understand the situation and are accredited and regulated to deal with all aspects of the probate and estate administration process.
  • Even when you do have close friends or family members who are willing and able to act as your executors, they often have no experience of acting in that capacity. Others have found that it is a great help to have someone involved who is both a professional and independent from the family, especially if there are Trusts created by the Will. The only time that we would not be able to act would be in cases where the Will is contested.
