Estate Management advice
If you’re wondering “What is probate?”, then we can assure you that you’re definitely not alone! This is a question we get from a lot of our clients, so we’re always happy to provide some clarity.
The process of dealing with someone’s estate when they die is called Probate. This typically entails clearing any debts they may have had and dividing their assets. It also enacts their wishes, as detailed in their will. If probate’s contested, or there is no Will, the process is certainly more complicated.. If you need to seek advice on intestacy rules, please contact our team of probate solicitors.

For more complicated estates, we’ll agree on a budget with the client upfront and we’ll stick to that. No one needs a surprise bill coming out of the blue, especially at times like this.
