What is Probate?

In its very basic form, Probate is the permission to carry out the wishes set out in someone’s will after they have died.  It also is the term which applies to the whole process of settling someone’s estate. If you have been made an executor of someone’s will, you will be expected to follow specific rules to notify the authorities and distribute the estate.

If you are in any doubt about what is required of you in administering a deceased estate, we have a dedicated professional and compassionate team who can guide you through the process and help you as much or as little as you would like, and when you would like.
