Probate & Estate Administration

One of the most difficult challenges in life we face is coping with the loss of a loved one.

We can provide practical advice and help you through the legal processes.

What is a Grant of Probate?

A Grant of Probate (where there is a Will) or a Grant of Letters of Administration (where there is no Will) is a document issued by the Probate Court to the person with responsibility for dealing with the estate.

The nature and value of assets owned by the deceased will determine whether or not a Grant is required.

Applying for Probate can be complicated, particularly if you are not familiar with the terminology, so it is easy to make mistakes.

The strict legal processes and the tax forms can be daunting and penalties for getting things wrong can be harsh.

Executors (where there is a Will) and Administrators (where there is no Will) are personally liable so it is important to understand the role and to get the right advice.

Some clients feel comfortable with dealing with such matters themselves whereas others prefer to be guided from the beginning. We, therefore, offer a bespoke service so you can benefit from as much or as little help as you need.

You can then have peace of mind that the wishes of the deceased have been carried out and the law has been adhered to.
