Probate and Estates

Probate is a term commonly used when talking about applying for the right to deal with a deceased person's affairs (called 'administering the estate') and resolving all claims and distributing the decedent's property under a Will.

In the event of a death of a loved one and there is a Will, one or more 'executors' may be named in the Will to deal with that persons affairs after their death.

If you have been named as an executor in a Will, or appointed as the administrator of an estate, Will Solutions can help you, whether or not we are appointed in the Will as an executor, and even where there is no Will.

On behalf of the executor, the probate solicitor will apply for a 'grant of probate' from a section of the court knows as the Probate Registry. The grant of probate is a legal document which confirms that the executor has the authority to deal with the deceased person's assets (property, money and possessions). The executor can use it to show that they have the right to access funds, sort out finances, and collect and share out the deceased person's assets as set out in the Will.
