Probate is the legal process that takes place in order to manage the estate of a person who is deceased. If you have been named as an executor, this means paying off any outstanding bills or debts and distributing their estate in the way that is set down in the Will. This often includes selling their home and any other major assets. In order to do this, you must apply for a Grant of Probate.

Probate can be a complex matter and each case is unique. It is important for executors to get the right legal support when applying for a Grant of Probate, and our specialist Wills and Probate solicitors will be able to guide you every step of the way.
