Executries

Our team are renowned for administering estates of all sizes sensitively and efficiently.

Executors appointed under a will usually instruct solicitors to deal with the administration of the estate and at Mackinnons we pride ourselves on doing so in an approachable, friendly and accessible way, keeping you informed throughout the process. From discussing the implications of the Will, through to liaising with HM Revenue and Customs and advising on taxation issues, preparing the necessary paperwork, and distributing legacies and residuary funds, we are able to provide the advice and assistance that you may need at a very difficult time.

Even when someone dies without a will, we can advise the next of kin of their entitlement under the intestacy rules, and administer the estate accordingly. We also deal with the finalisation of income tax and provide beneficiaries with advice in relation to their own taxation positions.
