These are based upon acting on behalf of either Executors named in a valid Will or acting on behalf of Beneficiaries who are entitled to the deceased’s estate where there is no Will.

  • in acting for Executors or Beneficiaries we will identify legally appointed Executors or Administrators or beneficiaries
  • We will accurately identify the type of Probate Application we require.
  • We will obtain the relevant documents required to make the application.
  • We will complete the application for a Grant and relevant HMRC forms.
  • We will draft a legal Oath Fee to swear.
  • We will make the application to the Probate Court on your behalf
  • We will obtain the appropriate grant and send two copies to you
  • We will collect and distribute all assets in the estate
  • We will deal with any additional matters arising in dealing with the things as set out above.

On average estates that fall within this range are dealt within the 6 to 12 months.  Obtaining Grant of Probate in straight forward cases will usually take 8 to 16 weeks.  The collecting in of the assets then follows which can be between 8 to 50 weeks.  Once this has been done, we will distribute the assets which normally takes a further 3 to 4 weeks.
