As your probate solicitor we pride ourselves as a team on providing good, clear and impartial advice in a professional and sympathetic manner during what can be a difficult time.
“Probate” is the term generally used to mean the administration of someone’s estate after he or she has died and distributing the estate in accordance with the terms of the Will or the laws of intestacy.
The GOV.UK website has a good overivew of Wills, probate and inheritance that is well worth reading to help you understand the different terms.
If someone dies without making a Will, they are said to have died intestate. In this instance, after funeral costs and debts are paid, the law dictates who will receive your estate.
We can also advise on setting up a Trust to protect your assets.
