Probate is a generic term used to cover the legal process under which the authority to deal with the assets of the deceased is granted to the personal representatives of the estate. People tend to refer to 'obtaining probate' whether there is a valid Will in place or if the deceased has died intestate.
In fact there are a number of different 'Letters of Representation' that may be obtained depending on whether the deceased left a Will or not. The most common being as follows:

Used where a valid Will is in place and the named executors apply to take out the grant.

Used where there is a valid Will but the executors named are unable or unwilling to apply for the grant, or a gift under the Will has failed and falls under the intestacy provisions.

Used where there is no valid Will and the deceased has died intestate.

The process is sometimes also known as 'proving' the Will as the Probate Court will check the Will to see if it is attested correctly and appears to comply with the legislation contained within the Wills Act 1837 in respect of its validity.

We offer 3 types of service as follows:-
Grant extraction
This basic service enables us to simply apply to the court for a grant on your behalf where you already have collected the estate information.

Simply Grant Service
We will liaise with all parties involved to obtain asset and liability information and carry out all pre grant work up to and including the court application.

Full Estate Administration
A totally inclusive service where we take on full liability for the administration of the total estate and distribution to all beneficiaries. This comprehensive end to end service includes collecting, insuring and selling any assets and dealing with all liabilities.
