Probate and Administration of Estates

Our team of Probate specialists provide a tailored service designed to lessen the load for you at this difficult time. The loss of a close friend or family member is a traumatic experience. You may not feel ready to deal with the complexities of administering the estate, or indeed know what needs to be done next.

Our free initial probate consultation will give you an idea of the work required in your particular case and we can then provide either a complete service from start to finish or a more bespoke service taking care of only certain legal, tax and administration issues.

We will provide you with details of the immediate steps that you need to take and explain the process of administering an estate and applying for probate based on the information that you provide to us. This will include:

  • Advice on the legal issues
  • Advice on any likely tax implications and the steps that can be taken to mitigate these
  • Overview of the responsibilities of an executor/administrator

Based on our free initial consultation with a probate solicitor we can then offer, in the majority of circumstances, a fixed fee to give you complete certainty as to our charges.

Our fees are flexible and tailored to the work that you wish us to undertake; this may range from the full administration of the estate to just obtaining the Grant of Probate, but throughout we can make sure that you receive the support that you need at a cost that you are happy with. This would be agreed before the commencement of any work and there would be no ongoing hourly charge, giving you the peace of mind that you can speak to us without being charged more than the fee agreed.
