What do after the death of a loved one

Dealing with the death of a loved one can be difficult enough without the stress of the huge task of sorting out their estate and financial affairs. In simple terms Probate is the process of administering an estate after someone has died. If the deceased person had a Will, this task normally passes over to the named executor. If they die intestate (without a Will) the task normally passes on to family members.

If you are responsible for the estate you may need to apply for a “grant of representation,” which is a legal document that gives you the legal right to take control of an estate. This is not usually required if you are a spouse or civil partner and the estate is held in joint names. If you are the executor of the Will you can apply for a “grant of probate”. We know how confusing it all sounds but we have a team of probate solicitors that can help you through the legal maze.
