Probate Lawyers and Solicitors

When some­one dies what he or she leaves behind is referred to as their Estate”. If you die leav­ing an Estate val­ued more than £5000.00 then it is nec­es­sary for the appro­pri­ate person/​s to obtain a Grant to estab­lish their enti­tle­ment to col­lect in your Estate and dis­trib­ute it to those entitled. 

A Pro­bate Solic­i­tor can advise you on the dif­fer­ent types of Grants of Rep­re­sen­ta­tion, each designed to cov­er a par­tic­u­lar cir­cum­stance. The most com­mon ones are those which cov­er the two most com­mon sit­u­a­tions — either the deceased died leav­ing a valid Will or they did not. These sit­u­a­tions can be con­fus­ing and com­pli­cat­ed, and an expert Pro­bate Lawyer will help you make sense of them and com­plete them as quick­ly as possible.

If you die leav­ing a Will then you will require a Grant of Pro­bate. Pro­bate” usu­al­ly refers to the legal process where­by the deceased’s assets are col­lect­ed togeth­er and, fol­low­ing var­i­ous legal and fis­cal steps and process­es are, even­tu­al­ly dis­trib­uted to the Ben­e­fi­cia­ries of the Estate.
