Dealing with probate & estate administration
Our probate solicitors take routine tasks off your hands and guide you through the more complex issues. We have worked with families for generations and have established a national reputation for our technical prowess and sensitive, personal approach.
We were one of the first firms in the UK to become accredited specialists in wills and probate under the Law Society’s Wills and Inheritance Scheme. When assets cross international borders, we have the expertise and contacts to handle tax and succession issues.
No matter how complex an estate, our probate lawyers will explain the situation clearly, we will make complicated arrangements appear much simpler.
We offer two levels of service.
Probate Solutions is a holistic approach whereby we help you with every aspect of the process: collecting and collating information, preparing papers, dealing with HMRC and the probate registry, administrating the estate, distributing assets and discharging debts. Our probate solicitors will also give you expert advice on tax and estate planning options.
This service is often available for a fixed fee. Our charges are always based on the level of work involved, not the value of the estate.
Direct2Probate is a service where we obtain a grant of probate for you, we provide clear, professional probate legal advice and support. You will need to complete a questionnaire, but our probate solicitors prepare all necessary paperwork.
We charge one of two fixed fees for this service, depending on the type of application needed.
