Probate Support

What we do

Probate Support

When someone dies, in order for their property, money and possessions (their ‘estate’) to be dealt with, the legal relevant legal authorisation to do so may need to be applied for. This is called ‘applying for probate’ (where there is a Will) or ‘letters of administration’ (where the deceased did not leave a Will). The people applying are called “personal representatives”: either executors named in the Will or next of kin where no Will was left.

At Pro-law, whilst we are not authorised under the Legal Services Act 2007 to submit an application for a grant on behalf of personal representatives in their own name, we are able to advise and support you in submitting an application for a grant personally, which is normally done online. On receipt of the grant, you would then have the necessary authority to administer the estate. This is usually the most appropriate and cost-effective for smaller or simpler estates, where you are able and willing to carry out the administration and distribution yourself, whether with or without further support from us.

If you would like to understand more about what we can offer in relation to Probate and Estate Administration, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
