Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy, and the legal process of probate can add an additional layer of complexity during an already challenging time. At Lewis Mitchell Solicitors, we understand the emotional and practical burdens that come with handling an estate, which is why our expert solicitors are here to provide compassionate guidance and support throughout the probate process.

What is Probate?

Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, including distributing their assets and settling their debts. This process typically involves obtaining a grant of probate from the court, which grants authority to the executor named in the deceased’s will to carry out their wishes and manage their affairs.

Expert Guidance Every Step of the Way

Navigating the probate process can be overwhelming, especially for those who are unfamiliar with the legal requirements and procedures involved. Our experienced solicitors are here to provide expert guidance and support every step of the way, including:

1. Estate Administration: We assist with gathering the deceased’s assets, valuing the estate, and preparing the necessary documentation for probate application.

2. Grant of Probate: We guide you through the process of applying for a grant of probate, ensuring that all necessary forms are completed accurately and submitted to the court in a timely manner.

3. Executor Duties: We advise executors on their legal duties and responsibilities, including managing assets, paying debts and taxes, and distributing inheritance to beneficiaries in accordance with the deceased’s wishes.
