In general, before you can act as an executor of a Will, you will likely first need to apply for a Grant of Probate. However, this depends on the value of the estate. We can assist with the process. A Grant of Probate is recognition that the named executor is authorised to deal with the administration of the estate. In fact, banks, insurance companies and other similar organisations will probably refuse to release assets without a Grant of Probate.

We can advise you on whether you need probate or not, do your application for you, and help you manage the distribution of the estate.

If there is no valid Will, we can help you obtain Letters of Administration to access your inheritance.
