Grant of Probate

When a person dies leaving a will, a grant of probate needs to be extracted to enable the personal representatives known as the Executor / Executrix administer the deceased’s assets and possessions in accordance with the Will.

In order to obtain a grant of probate, certain documentation needs to be lodged in the Probate Office together with the relevant fees. This documentation can be quite intricate and they require careful drafting. The Probate Office is very particular with the applications they accept. More often than not, applications are rejected based on insufficient information or due to an error in the paperwork. Such refusals result in a delay in obtaining the grant and additional fees with each subsequent reapplication.

In order to avoid delay and additional expenses, you should instruct a specialist probate solicitor at the outset. We will explain the process to you as simply and as clearly as possible.
