Applying for Probate
Whether you chose to carry out the probate and estate administration process yourself, or you instruct us to do the work for you, the application for probate is still the same and involves:

  • Finding the will
  • Applying for the grant of representation
  • Administering the estate
  • Preparing the estate accounts
  • Distributing the assets to the beneficiaries of the estate

A quicker processing means reduced costs. In doing so, we can reduce the amount of time it takes to compile the necessary information. By speeding up the process we can help you to keep the costs down, leaving more for the beneficiaries.
