At a time of bereavement it can be difficult it can be to deal with your loss. Obtaining a Grant of Probate may be more than you can cope with. Why not make an appointment to come and talk to an experienced solicitor who can guide you through the process? You can then decide whether you need a solicitor. Unlike many solicitors who charge an hourly rate and a percentage of the Estate we charge a Fixed Fee price. Our charges are deducted when the administration of the estate is concluded.
Probate (Grant of Representation) is a document that will allow you to deal with a person’s estate. The process is often viewed as complicated.
Are you an Executor of a Will and unsure of your responsibilities?
If you have been appointed as an Executor in an estate or you are one of the closest members of the family of the deceased you may wish to consider taking advice. The process can become complicated. This is particularly so if Inheritance Tax is payable to H M Revenue & Customs. In those circumstances it is critical that assets are correctly valued.
Advice from a Probate and Estate Administration Solicitor with the right level of expertise and experience can avoid the added pressures of administering an estate whilst having to provide for yourself and your family.
- A Grant is not always needed, for example if the estate is less than £5,000.00 in total or they owned everything jointly with someone else.
- A Grant is normally needed when dealing with a house or land, stocks and shares and estates over £5,000.00
