Probate and Letters of Administration - Greigs Legal

Probate & Letters of Administration

Passed away leaving a Will - Probate

When a loved one passes away leaving a Will, the nominated Executor must apply for a "grant of probate" to administer the deceased's estate. This grant of probate is issued by the probate registry and is essential for the Executor to legally manage and distribute the estate according to the deceased's wishes.

At Greigs Legal, our experienced probate lawyers prepare the legal documents required to obtain a grant of probate and assist the Executor in the probate process. Our probate solicitors provide comprehensive support, ensuring the probate estate is administered smoothly and in full accordance with the last Will of the deceased.

Our probate services include:

  • Document Preparation: Our probate lawyers handle all necessary paperwork to secure the grant of probate from the probate office.
  • Expert Legal Advice: We provide guidance on the duties and responsibilities of an Executor throughout the probate process.
  • Estate Administration: We assist in gathering assets, paying debts, and distributing the estate to beneficiaries as outlined in the probate of the Will.
  • Cost Management: We offer transparent advice on probate costs to help you budget effectively.

Passed Away Leaving No Valid Will - Letters of Administration
