Alongside this, our highly qualified estates and probate team will see that this is done to a high level of legal expertise.

We can offer a full probate service that deals with every aspect of the process or, where a family member is named as executor and wants to be involved but not sure of the legal considerations, we also offer a service that we call Probate Assist.  Probate Assist can be tailored to your specific needs.  This is a more cost-efficient way of a family member going through probate and submitting the application for a Grant of Probate, whilst being certain that they have covered all of the legal and tax implications.  In some cases we can even uncover assets that the family was not aware of that more than covers our Probate Assist fee.

You have done a sterling job!! Certainly reduced my stress levels as executor.
