Applying for probate
Dealing with bereavement is a difficult time particularly if you have to make funeral arrangements and deal with the estate of a friend or family member.
We administer estates in a sympathetic and helpful way and understand the need to deal with the estate in an atmosphere of tact and sensitivity.
Our Probate Department offers a full range of services to Executors or Administrators to guide you with genuine expertise and understanding through any issues that arise along the way. This includes advising Personal Representatives on the need to apply for probate, assisting the personal representatives to apply for a Grant of Probate (if there is a will) or Grant of Letters of Administration (if there is no will), preparing a list of assets and liabilities, preparing Inheritance Tax returns, and distribution of the estate to beneficiaries.
