What is Probate?…

Probate is the court's authority, given to a person or persons, to administer a deceased person's estate and the document issued by the Probate Registry is called a Grant of Representation. This document is usually required by the asset holders (such as banks) as proof to show the correct person or persons have the Probate Registry's authority to administer a deceased person's estate.

Who are Executors and, what are their responsibilities?…

An executor is a person the deceased wished to deal with the administration of their estate after their death. It is your Executor's responsibility to:

  • Determine what property and other assets you owned, as well as your liabilities.
  • Arrange for current valuations of your personal possessions, property, investments, any pension or insurance entitlements due and also any debts and bills.
  • Arrange for the payment of your funeral.
  • Establish Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Inheritance Tax liabilities and complete the necessary tax returns to submit to the Revenue.
  • Complete and submit the necessary Probate Registry forms.
  • Arrange the clearance and sale of any property.
  • Collect assets and pay any debts.
  • Arrange for the distribution of legacies and gifts to your beneficiaries.
  • Compile detailed accounts to give to the main beneficiaries.
  • In the case of minor children being beneficiaries, then your Executor may act as Trustee for ongoing trusts, to hold their monies until they reach 18.

Your choice of Executors and/or the Solicitors they instruct can determine how quickly and efficiently the administration of the estate is progressed.

What is an estate?…

Someone's estate is everything that they own; all of their assets (whether real property or personal property) and their liabilities.

How can we help?

Through our fixed fee probate service, Premier Solicitors can assist in how the administration of an estate is progressed, and can progress matters on a timely basis, in order to maintain low costs and high client satisfaction.

Avoid unnecessary large legal fees!

Our rates are so competitive that we carry out work for many other Solicitors, Will Writing & Probate Companies and High Street Banks for a number of reasons, including: they may not deal with Probate work (for example Commercial-only firms of Solicitors or Will Writing only-companies); they may not have the expertise to deal with the more complicated cases; they may not be able to cope with large volumes of work; or we may simply be cheaper than their advertised cost!

Call us today on 01234 35 80 80 to speak to a member of our qualified Probate Team or arrange an appointment to meet us in our offices in Bedford.
