Probate & Administration of Estates

Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of someone who has passed away; realising all assets and liabilities, and distibuting any money and possessions in accordance with the deceased's Will.  A Grant of Probate (or Letters of Administration where someone has died without leaving a Will) is required to give one or more persons the legal authority to deal with the Estate and this must be obtained from the Courts after HMRC has sanctioned it.  Once the Grant of Representation has been acquired, the recipient can begin to administer the Estate which can be a very long and complex process.  A fixed probate fee can be set by agreement which will relieve families of any financial worries and uncertainty at what will be a distressing time and which will save having to deal with HMRC completing inheritance tax, income tax and capital gains liabilities, if any.
