More Information on Full Probate Service
When someone makes a Will, they usually name an Executor/s who they want to look after their affairs when they die.
After the person’s death, the Executor may then have to apply to the Probate Registry (Court) for a Grant of Probate, so they have the legal authority to administer the Estate.
Our specialist Probate Solicitors can do as much or as little of the Estate administration as you need.
The Estate administration will usually include obtaining Probate, gathering in all the Estate assets, having them valued, dealing with taxes and paying any debts before distributing the Estate to the Beneficiaries.
With our full Probate Service, we’ll return passports to the passport office, deal with house clearance, house insurance and utility bills, check for missing assets or policies and protect the Estate against unknown creditors.
We can also help if matters are more complex or if any disputes arise. For instance, there may be a dispute between Beneficiaries, or the deceased may not have left a Will. For more information see Contentious Probate.
Our Probate Solicitors can provide comprehensive legal advice tailored to your specific circumstances, deal with the Inheritance Tax, Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax matters, prepare full Estate accounts and correspond with all the Beneficiaries.
