Probate Solicitors Offering Expert Legal Advice

The first thing to do after obtaining the death certificate is to make an appointment to come and see us so we can ascertain what procedures need to be made. We would need to know if there is a Will if not we can guide you through the rules of intestacy.

If there is a Will

The Executor of the Will is the only person legally able to deal with the estate of the deceased. We would need to know what assets were held by the deceased and we can then advise the likelihood of whether Probate needs to be made or whether the estate can be dealt with on a small estates basis. If Probate is required we can usually provide you with fairly accurate figures as to what our costs will be and also the length of time this will take.

If there is no Will

There is an order of people who are able to make the application for Grant of Letters of Administration – We can explain to you who has priority and who the likely beneficiaries of the estate are. If there is no Will the estate can become very complicated and people who you did not think where entitled to a share of the estate may well be entitled. It is important you take legal advice if there is no Will at an early stage
