Managing the affairs of a loved one when they have died is never easy and it can become very complicated at an already difficult time.
Probate is the process of administering a dead person’s estate. It involves calling in their assets, paying off any debts at the date of death, inheritance tax if it is applicable before distributing what remains according to the loved’s Will or the intestacy rules if a person dies without leaving a Will.
If you are named as the executor of a Will, you have to apply for a Grant of Probate if our loved one left property or assets over £5000.
We are here to help you work through all the procedures that you will need to follow to ensure that loved one’s estate is wound up efficiently and effectively.
We can help you with any stage of the probate process, such as disputes, offering a personalised service for each customer.
And if you have been named as executor but don’t wish to administer the estate yourself we can apply for probate on your behalf under a power of attorney.
We know this will be an emotional and stressful time, so we won’t hurry you through the process but will take the time to help and guide you.
We have been through the procedure many times and can foresee difficulties, acting on them before they arise to make the process as easy as possible.
Our flexibility means that we can take on the probate process even if you have started it and be adaptable to your needs and wishes.
