We provide comprehensive probate services. The term Probate relates to the affairs of someone who has died. The person may leave behind a simple or highly complicated estate. This may include bank accounts, property and other assets such as shares, property held in a tenancy in common, assets and business interest which cannot be sold or transferred until the grant of Probate.
We have considerable experience in administering estates by ascertaining and settling the liabilities; distributing the estate in accordance with the terms of the Will or in accordance with the statutory rules.
There are many formalities to comply with when someone dies apart from registering the death and funeral arrangement. We can prepare all the documents, calculate Inheritance tax of any and apply for grant of representation.
Unlike the banks or Trust Organisations our service are provided at very reasonable costs which can be either based on % of the estate or hourly based fees depending on the matter and complexity.
Some Probates matters are very time consuming as the solicitors have to locate all beneficiaries, collect financial documents; calculate Income Tax due or Inheritance Tax payable. These matters take time and can sometimes last for over 12 to 18 months to finalise.
We have over 10 years experience in providing probate services to our clients. Please contact one of our Probate Lawyers on 020 8877 3421 to discuss your case.
