How can Leech & Co help you with the Grant of Probate and administering the estate?
As an Executor, you can apply for the Grant of Probate and administer the estate yourself without assistance from a Solicitor, but we would not advise that you do this. It can be a complex, lengthy and time-consuming process with multiple stages, forms to complete, inheritance tax issues to consider and different banks, building societies and companies to deal with. An error at any stage or with the forms can delay the process and administering the estate incorrectly could lead to your actions being legally challenged.
Also, as the Executor of a loved one’s Will, you will be coming to terms with your loss and therefore it is likely you will need assistance dealing with the issues and the work involved.
Leech & Co can help you, as the Executor, to navigate this process as quickly and efficiently as possible. We will come to you to discuss the matter with you and we will advise and assist you every step of the way until the administration of the estate is complete.
