Unlike most lawyers DW Solicitors agree a fixed price without any extras, unless the estate is particularly complex. We will need to ask you a number of questions about the estate before we can give you a quote.
Obtaining probate is the process of transferring the assets of someone who has died to their Executors (if there is a Will) or Administrators (if there is no Will). It includes applying to the Court and submitting a tax declaration to HM Revenue & Customs.
If there is no Will we will tell you who is entitled to receive the property of the person who has died. This is known as an intestate estate.
We will transfer the assets of the estate to the Executors or Administrators. We will prepare the Estate Accounts, agree them with you, and arrange for payments of the correct amounts of tax with the remainder paid to the beneficiaries.
