Managing Probate

Only certain people can apply for probate top deal with the estate of someone who has died. It depends on whether that person has left a will or not. If there is a will then that person or people will be named as executors in the will. If there is no will then only a spouse, child or civil partner can apply to the Probate Office to act an “Administrator” to the estate left behind. You will receive letters of administration to prove that you are legally entitled to deal with the estate.

In the case of a will where an individual is named in the will or named as an executor you can apply to the Probate Office for Probate.

Ensuring that an estate is correctly dealt with in accordance with the instructions in a will can be challenging, complex and time consuming. It can also mean dealing with the final affairs of a loved one, so emotional and upsetting. We understand the emotional aspects of the Probate process well and will give you the time and space to process your emotions.

Alongside the beginning of the grieving process we can apply our experience to help you understand the final wishes of your loved one, deal with any taxation issues, and ensure that the instructions of the will are carried out efficiently, transparently and in line with the law.

I would highly recommend Will Protect. They have recently created and registered Lasting Powers of Attorney for us. Following my initial telephone conversation with our advisor, I had no concerns and remained fully reassured about all aspects of the work. Our advisor was prompt, friendly, professional and reliable. I would definitely contact Will Protect again if we required any further work.

Nothing is too much trouble and our advisor gave freely of his time to ensure we understood and were happy with our wills.
