Probate is the legal process of administering a deceased person's estate, ensuring that their assets, properties, and possessions are distributed according to their wishes or the applicable laws. Obtaining a 'Grant of Probate' is an essential step in this process. It is a court order that confirms the named executor in the Will's authority to deal with the deceased's estate.
In cases where the deceased did not leave a Will, and you wish to administer their estate, you will need to apply for 'Letters of Administration' to the HM Courts & Tribunal Services. This allows you to manage and distribute the assets in accordance with the rules of intestacy.
We understand that this can be a challenging and emotional time for all involved. Our firm is here to offer compassionate assistance with your Probate application. Alternatively, we can handle the entire Probate process on your behalf, acting as Executors, providing you with peace of mind during this difficult period.
Once you hold a 'Grant of Probate,' we can efficiently manage the administration of the deceased's estate on your behalf. This involves various tasks, such as liaising with banks and utility companies to cancel services, handling property matters, and advising on the best course of action, should the deceased have expressed a wish to sell the property. For more information on Conveyancing requirements under Probate, you can visit the Residential Conveyancing page.
Our commitment to transparency is reflected in our pricing approach. Unlike some providers, we DO NOT charge fees based on the value of the estate or a percentage of its assets. Instead, we charge solely for the time spent on the matter, ensuring fairness and cost-effectiveness for our clients.
At every step of the Probate process, we strive to alleviate the burden and complexity, providing efficient and comprehensive services to ensure the deceased's final wishes are respected and their estate is managed with the utmost care and attention.
At Thurstan Hoskin we like to take the worry and stress away from you
