How we Can Help you With Probate
If you have been appointed as an Executor under a Will or are taking on the role of Administrator on an intestacy (when the deceased did not leave a Will), you will be undertaking a task that brings with it a host of responsibilities and obligations. These include but are not limited to:
- Protecting assets until they are sold or transferred to beneficiaries.
- Finalising all matters pertaining to Inheritance Tax, Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax.
- Preparing and submitting an application to the Court for a Grant of Representation (Probate or Letters of Administration).
- Ensuring all debts and liabilities of the estate are settled.
- Distributing the estate in accordance with the deceased’s Will or according to the Rules of Intestacy.

Neil John, our solicitor, was honest and fair, giving me independent advice on how to proceed with my claim. I felt supported throughout and although I was disappointed with the outcome, I was fully aware that it was the best outcome available. I cannot recommend these solicitors enough.Client - Wisbech Office
