If you need advice about administering an estate or applying for a Grant Of Probate, our probate solicitors are here to help you.
If you have been named as an executor in a Will this could be a worry for you, particularly as you are trying to come to terms with your loss.
Please don’t worry though – we can help.
Our probate solicitors have been helping people complete probate for many years. We can assist you with the process and complete probate efficiently and cost effectively, so you can focus on coming to terms with losing your loved one.
Probate is the process that needs to take place when someone dies to administer their estate.
If your loved one dies and leaves a Will, this provides the instructions on whom they have appointed as executor. This can be one or more individuals or even a solicitor, but whoever the executor is has the legal responsibility to prepare the estate and divide it as the Will instructs. In addition, the executor has to apply for a Grant of Probate from the court. This allows them to legally distribute the estate and complete all of the necessary paperwork and administration connected with probate.
If your loved one has not left a Will, the process is different. The law of intestacy (dying without a Will) dictates who can act on behalf of the person who died, and this is usually next of kin. You will have to apply to the court to get Letters of Administration, which will allow completion of administration of the estate.
You may decide that you do not want the responsibility of being an executor at all. In these circumstances, we can take the matter off your hands and complete the probate process as quickly and efficiently as possible on your behalf.
