What is probate?

Probate is the term which is commonly used when applying for the right to administer the estate of a person who has passed away. This is known as a grant of probate, a legal document which confirms the executor has the authority to deal with the estate.

The person named as an executor in a Will must handle the estate by paying any taxes and bills and distributing any money or property to those who are entitled to it.

How can a solicitor help you with the administration of an estate?

For many people, it can be difficult to know how to start the process when dealing with a loved one’s estate. Instructing a specialist solicitor can relieve a great deal of this burden.

The service provided by your solicitor can range from applying for a Grant of Probate and dealing with complex Inheritance Tax issues right through to dealing with all aspects of the estate.

If there is no Will in place, a solicitor will be available to guide you through the processes involved in obtaining the authority to deal with any assets.
