Tara Payne

Probate Manager (Senior Associate)

Private wealth

I am a probate manager within the estates team here at Cripps. My clients value me for my empathy and understanding.

With over 10 years’ experience of dealing with probate matters, I enjoy guiding clients through the administration of their loved one’s estate, sensitively and economically.

I particularly focus on grant application, including the HMRC forms required. I also enjoy bringing the estate together at the end with the preparation of detailed estate accounts.

I like to take the stress and worry away from my clients, allowing them to deal with the most important area, namely the loss of their loved one. I pride myself on providing practical advice sensitively and accompanied with care.

Areas of expertise:

  • Executors duties and responsibilities.
  • Dealing with estates where there is no Will (intestacy)
  • Obtaining a grant where an original Will has been lost
  • Dealing with Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man Grant applications
  • Inheritance tax allowances
  • Gifts analysis for inheritance tax
  • Estate Accounts
  • Capital gains tax
  • Business and agricultural assets

Qualifications and memberships

  • Associate Member of Chartered Institute of Legal Executives
