Happy memory: Taking my son Haris to his first Manchester United match.
Ambition as a child: Playing for England. Either football or cricket. It’s safe to say I missed the boat on that one.
Why Estate Planning: When my brother died at 31, he left a wife, a toddler and no Will. I witnessed first hand the additional stress and anxiety this caused in an already traumatic time. It made me realise how important making a Will is.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is Grant of Probate?
Probate is the legal word used to describe the process of settling a deceased person’s estate. In order to ‘get’ Probate, you must apply for a Grant of Probate. This is the legal document that can be used to prove your right to deal with the deceased person’s estate.
Why our fixed-fee probate service is ideal for you?
Most Probate solicitors will charge you a percentage of the estate plus an hourly rate. We believe this is unfair and so we will tell you at the outset what our fee is up front.
We will not charge you for hidden fees or costs.
Do I need to apply for probate?
If the deceased person had a small estate, you will not not need to apply for a grant of probate to access things like bank accounts. If your spouse passed away and all property and bank accounts were jointly held, you may likely be able to transfer the assets without a Grant of Probate.
Applying for Probate can be a complicated affair, and there maybe long tax forms to complete, obtaining correct financial figures to obtain and ensuring that the correct tax allowances are applied for to ensure that you do not inadvertently have to pay inheritance tax.
Why don’t you call us, to find out whether you really need professional help, and if so, which of our probate services best suits you. And if you don’t need us – we will guide you to what you need to do to make sure that you can move forward.
If there is no will – what can I do?
When someone dies without leaving a will (known as dying ‘intestate’), the deceased person’s estate is inherited by the closest living relative(s).
The probate process is much the same, and you can still use a probate service to sort out the estate.
Don’t I need a probate solicitor to do probate?
There is no requirement to use a solicitor for probate. However, we would advise strongly that you do not do this process yourself, as it can be complicated and you do not want to trust this very important process on unqualified people who are not qualified and have the right indemnity insurance in place to give you peace of mind that the work is being done by a qualified solicitor.
