Probate Solicitors

Our specialist probate solicitors can assist with all aspects of probate law. Personal Representatives understand and carry out their responsibilities which is often a great relief and comfort because it can feel overwhelming. Unlike many probate solicitors, if there is a dispute or one crops up, we can help with that too – all under one roof.

Professional, Plain-Speaking Probate Solicitors

We understand most Personal Representatives go through an emotional and challenging time, often grappling with the death of a loved one while carrying the weight of sorting everything out. Dealing with the huge amount of paperwork involved can be overwhelming and confusing. Sometimes, relatives may be worried about the absence of a will or concerned about a will’s contents. Whatever your need for a probate solicitor, we’re here to help.

As professional, plain-speaking probate solicitors, our years of experience means that we can manage the whole process, explaining each step in clear easy to understand language. These steps can include:

  • Registering a death and making funeral arrangements

  • Applying for the correct Grant of Representation

  • Establishing and verifying beneficiaries

  • Finding and identifying beneficiaries

  • Identifying estate assets

  • Collecting in the estate assets

  • Sale of estate assets including properties and shares

  • Paying the estate’s debts

  • Completing tax returns where appropriate

  • Preparation of detailed comprehensive estate accounts

  • Distributing the estate to beneficiaries.

Unlike many probate solicitors, if there is a dispute or one crops up, we can help with that too – all under one roof. Whatever the issue, contact us and we can clearly set out your options and help you achieve the best resolution.
