Winding up an Estate in Scotland

The process of winding up an estate in known in Scotland as executry and the person who is in charge of winding up the estate is known as an executor.

If the deceased had a will, then the executor (appointed in the will) winds the estate up in accordance with the will. We can help take the executor through the will and assist in managing the winding up of the estate.

If there is no will, we will petition the court to have an executor appointed and ensure that the estate is wound up according to law.

In most cases, Confirmation must be obtained before the estate can be fully wound up – bank accounts and investments cannot be redeemed until confirmation has be obtained.

There may be other issues which must be taken care of such as dealing with property and inheritance tax.

It can obviously be difficult to deal with the legal aspects of winding up an estate at a difficult time. to ensure that an estate is wound up as quickly and efficiently as possible, contact us today.
