If you are an Executor who has the time to gather together all of the information needed about the estate, but you need help with the application to the Probate Registry for the Grant which will enable you to deal with the assets in the estate, then we can assist with this discrete aspect of the estate administration.
This service is specifically tailored for those clients who only need help with the preparation and submission of the application for a Grant of Probate (or Grant of Letters of Administration, if there is no Will).

This service is not available for larger or more complex estates which have to be declared to HMRC. Click here for information about how we can help with these estates – Our Estate Administration Services.
We cannot usually provide this service if the application is more complex because there is the need for additional documents to be drafted, such as the preparation of an Affidavit if there is a query about the validity of the Will or where a foreign Will needs to be proved.
We can provide advice about other aspects of the administration of the estate for an additional charge.
Once we have all of the necessary information, we can have the application documentation ready within 7 to 10 working days.
Once the Grant application has been submitted, we normally receive the Grant from the Probate Registry within three weeks, although it can sometimes take longer if the Probate Registry has a busy caseload.
We charge a fixed fee of £750 plus VAT for this service. Since we are required to verify your identity when commencing work for you, we also make a charge of £10 plus VAT per person.
