When you pass away, there are various vital duties which need to be completed. The making of a Will is unexceptionally important, not least because it means that your chosen executors are given the responsibility of ensuring the tasks are carried out and that your wishes are respected. It also means that you will not be said to have died intestate. If this happens, it means that the appointment of the administrators of the estate will be decided by the Intestacy Rules. The people administering your estate may not be those who you would have chosen.
If you die without a Will, there is a danger that:
– Your children may be disinherited unintentionally.
– Your spouse might not inherit all that you want them to.
– Your family home may have to be sold.
– No guardian has been appointed for your young children.
– There may be no automatic entitlement for your unmarried partner or example stepchildren or friends.
The legal right to deal with a person’s estate – which includes their possesions, properties and money – upon their death can be applied for via a grant of representation, otherwise known as probate if a Will had been made or a Grant of letters of administration if the person had died intestate, without making a Will. At Haleys, we can provide all of the probate services you require.

A person’s arrest, the search of their premises and the seizure of their property can be hugely damaging. This is a niche area of law and we work closely with specialist counsel in seeking injunctive relief where necessary, and the appropriate remedies for the unlawful use of these intrusive powers.
The power of the state to restrain or freeze assets has steadily increased, and become easier, over recent years. It may be an early step in a criminal investigation, or a power used instead of a criminal case. We have expertise in challenging asset freezing process in all environments.
