Probate Support & Advice
We aim to provide a stress free Probate service to support you through these difficult times. Whether you are the Executor of a Will, a close family relative or friend, we can provide you with clear practical advice on what to do following the death of a loved one.
Our Probate advice team will listen to your particular circumstances, to ensure we are best placed to provide you with advice and support covering:
The immediate next steps that you need to take.
An explanation of Probate to help you understand if Probate is required to administer the Estate.
An explanation of Estate Administration and the legal responsibilities and the liabilities.
Options and choices available to you when deciding what to do next.
Our initial advice to establish your particular circumstances is free. If Probate is then required, we can provide our Fixed Fee Probate Service for you, or you can deal with Probate yourself.
If you choose to do Probate and administer the Estate yourself, you should be prepared to commit approximately 70-100 hours of highly detailed administrative work over a period of up to 12 months to complete the Estate Administration, Inheritance Tax, Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax and any other legal work.
It’s very important to note that an Executor, a Personal Representative or an Estate Administrator can be held personally financially liable for any loss resulting from a breach of their duty, even if a mistake or mistakes were genuine errors.
We offer you peace of mind for a fixed fee.
Our values of openness, honesty, social responsibility and caring for others are core to the service we provide. Our customers consistently rate the quality of our legal advice and services. You can read our reviews here.
