Why choose Expert Attorney for your probate support services
Law firms often handle probate – but it doesn't make sense for a lawyer to do all the support work. The probate process can be broken into three stages:
Pre Grant work - getting this right is critical as the information you gather will be used to make the actual application for probate. Most of this is support work. We do this work for law firms, individuals and charities and then work closely with the lawyers who will carry out the second stage.
The application for probate is the second stage which involves completing the inheritance tax forms, claiming the allowances and paying inheritance tax (if payable). This stage is complicated and we strongly recommend that a specialist is used to deal with this.
Post Grant Work – once you have the Grant of probate the debts need to be paid and assets encashed. Again a lot of this work is support work but it is essential that you know what you are doing. Tax needs to be finalised during this period and accounts need to be prepared.
What if there is no Will
The process will be the same but you will apply for a grant of administration. However, intestacy rules will apply which will dictate who receives what.
Attorney / Deputys
Again a lot of the work is support work but you need to know what you are doing. Being an attorney or deputy carries a great deal of responsibility and can be very time consuming.
