When a loved one dies it is essential that you get good, clear, accurate advice on what to do next. We can help when someone dies in Scotland.

The death of a loved one is a difficult and stressful time. It is essential that if you are dealing with the affairs of someone who has died, that you get good clear accurate advice on what to do next. Our Executry (Probate) Solicitors in Scotland can help.

The aim of our Solicitors is to take some of the burden from you and to offer support and guidance at what can be a sad and difficult time.

Most people need help through the process and our Solicitors can take you through every step. You will not be left to do this on your own.

Knowing how hard it is to make your way through the process when someone dies in Scotland, and at such an upsetting time, here are the key issues:-

  • A medical certificate needs to be obtained and the funeral organised.
  • The next of kin requires to establish if there is a Will since the Will appoints someone who will deal with matters from now on. This is the person named as Executor. Often the next of kin knows whether there is a Will or not and also, the same person is appointed to make the arrangements.
  • After the funeral has been arranged, the property of the person who has died requires to be dealt with. In Scotland, an Executor must be appointed before they can take over the administration of the estate of someone who has died. This appointment can be made in the deceased’s Will or by the Court. The Executor can be a family member or a Solicitor. If the Executor is not a Solicitor, they would normally instruct a Solicitor to assist in the collecting together of the assets of the person who has died.

Our Solicitors understand that this is a difficult and stressful time and that the process should be handled as swiftly as is possible. At Raeside Chisholm we offer a wide range of Executry (Probate) services which are efficient and we understand that one of the main priorities of the relatives of someone who has died, will be to seek closure. In order for this to happen, certain steps must be carried out under Scots Law. One of the most important steps is to obtain Confirmation, the Scottish equivalent of Probate. This document or Confirmation is important as it shows to third parties that the person named in it is entitled to deal lawfully with the property of the person who has died.

Our Solicitors can quickly and effectively help you administer the affairs of someone who has died.
