Proceedings against estates under the Succession Act or matters of a testamentary nature.

The Probate Handbook seeks to guide the legal practitioner through the pitfalls encountered when drafting a Will.

The book also gives an overview of:

  • various Court applications, both contentious and non-contentious which may be necessary;
  • Capital Acquisitions Tax and the main points which may arise in the administration of the estate and also in relation to discretionary trusts.

This book is a must for all Irish legal practitioners dealing with probate related matters and will be of great interest to anyone wishing to learn more about probate practice
