What is Probate?

A Grant of Probate is when the deceased assets are over a certain amount and you need the court authority to be able to release them to another person. The grant of probate is usually required by the asset holders as proof to show the correct person or persons have the Probate service's authority to administer a deceased's estate.

Types of Probate

Probate (when the deceased person left a valid will and an executor is acting)
Letters of administration with will (when a person has left a valid will but no executor is acting)
Letters of administration (usually when there is no valid will).
When Is Probate Needed

It is generally accepted that Probate is needed if there are asset's over £5000 however it does depend on where the asset is held, we will be able to help work out if probate is needed.

How it works - our Wills start from only £30 for a single Will, you then add to the cost, in increments of £20 or £30 if you require a Trust, Guardianship clause or special instruction in your Will. This is the same way you would buy a car, you pay for the basis model and then add the extras if you want them.
