Probate and Estate Administration
Probate is the legal authority, which allows the executors of a Will to carry out the administration of a loved one’s estate in accordance with their Will.
If there is no Will, then the next of kin will need to apply for a Grant of Administration to enable them to carry out the estate administration in line with the Rules of Intestacy.
Let Us help
Probate can often be a complex and extremely time consuming process and needs attending to at a time when you may not feel able to perform this task.
Our specialist Probate Team have a sympathetic and patient approach when dealing with bereaved relatives and will happily arrange a visit to discuss your requirements in the comfort of your own home.
Unlike Solicitors and many other Legal companies who often charge an hourly rate, we can offer a Fixed Fee Probate Service which is quoted in advance of any work being undertaken. This could be a considerable saving on the fees you would typically need to pay a high street Bank or Solicitor.
Once you have agreed to use our Probate service, you will be appointed your own Case Handler who will personally look after your case.
As part of our Probate Service, we can also offer you independent advice on the Will itself and may, under certain circumstances, recommend that a Deed of Variation be set up in order to vary the Will. This process would effectively ensure that the beneficiaries of the Will receive as much of their inheritance as possible, without having to pay out large chunks of it to the Inland Revenue in taxes.
This process must be executed within two years of death and needs to be with the agreement of all the beneficiaries.
