Probate is the process by which an executor of someone’s Will obtains the rights to deal with a deceased person’s property, money and possessions. It is usually required when dealing with banks, pension providers, insurers and always in the selling of property. It is worth noting that there is no obligation to use the probate services of the firm who stored the will.
Valentine & Co offers a range of probate services, from obtaining a Grant of Probate where there was a Will in place, obtaining a Grant under an intestacy, to the full estate administration of the estate.
A sensitive and professional service
Our experienced probate solicitors can handle all types of cases, including domicile issues, business property and inheritance issues, in a sympathetic and efficient manner. We understand that it can be a very difficult and sensitive time when you lose a loved one, and recognise the importance of giving clear, timely and practical advice.
We endeavour to be flexible and can help clients to manage costs by dealing with certain aspects of probate themselves, while avoiding unnecessary risk, delay or complicated paperwork.
