Here at King Street Solicitors, we know that dealing with loss is a difficult time that comes with complexities from arranging the funeral to unravelling a person’s estate. The last thing you need is the added stress and worry about the legal complications surrounding probate or even knowing where to start.

What is probate?

Probate refers to the legal process by which a Will is validated and authority to administer the estate is granted. It also includes obtaining letters of administration to appoint someone to administer an estate where there was no Will. During the difficult grieving process, it’s important for this to be done quickly and compassionately.

At King Street Solicitors, our experienced probate solicitors are here to help and can offer practical as well as legal advice to guide you through this difficult process. Whether you need help in dealing with the formalities, establishing assets, identifying the executors of the Will or simply need to hand over a suitcase of documents and for us to deal with everything from valuing the estate to paying the beneficiaries, there is a legal service to suit your needs.

We offer a full probate service which includes advising you on the estate’s liability for inheritance tax (including arranging the payment of this).

Our professional and caring probate solicitors are here to take the stress away from you and they will ensure this is made as easy as possible for you and your loved ones.
