Probate services

Whether or not a Will exists and regardless of by whom it has been held, when someone close to you dies, you can benefit from our experience and the practical help we will provide. If there are no complicating factors, you may choose to undertake the Probate yourself. We can guide you through the process, providing advice and guidance as you need it. Go to our Probate: do it yourself page.

If not, we can attend to the immediate legal formalities and apply for a Grant of Probate (or Letters of Administration in the case of intestacy), administer the estate, seeing to bequests and dealing with taxation. We will gather the assets and administer them in accordance with the Will.  Up to two years after the date of death, the terms of the Will may be varied in order to save tax or pass on an inheritance.

  • Valuation of assets and liabilities
