Work included and key stages 

The precise work and stages involved in a probate matter vary according to the circumstances. However, we have set out the key stages involved in a typical full estate administration probate matter:

  • Take your instructions and give you initial advice.
  • Identify the legally appointed executors or administrators and beneficiaries.
  • Establish the extent of the estate by identifying the various assets and liabilities.
  • Identify the type of probate application required.
  • The application for Grant of Probate is prepared and then sworn by the executor and submitted to the appropriate Probate Registry together with the Will, if there is one.
  • Once the Grant is received, it is submitted to the various organisations with whom assets are held in order to start the process of transferring the assets into the beneficiaries’ names.
  • All estate liabilities have to be paid before the estate can be distributed among the beneficiaries;
  • Confirmation is required that tax is paid up to date and there are no outstanding HMRC claims;
  • Estate accounts should be prepared thereafter, and the estate distributed in accordance with the terms of the Will.

  • Any contested probate matters or advice on the same.

Factors that could increase costs

  • If there is no will or the estate consists of any share holdings (stocks and bonds) there is likely to be additional costs that could range significantly depending on the estate and how it is to be dealt with.
  • If any additional copies of the grant are required.
