Probate and Estate Administration

Do you need help obtaining a Grant of Probate?  Would you like to appoint a solicitor to administer your estate after your death?  Or perhaps you have been appointed executor of a Will and are unsure where to start?  We can help.

The term “Probate” technically means the legal verification of a Will.  In practice however, most people associate it with the administration of someone’s estate on death and the distribution of assets in accordance with the Will.

At Backhouse Solicitors, our team of Probate specialists provide advice with understanding and sensitivity when winding up and administering estates.  We understand that this is an extremely difficult time for the relatives of the deceased, and we will do our utmost to make the process as straightforward and free of stress as possible.

We will establish whether it is necessary to obtain a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration to allow assets to be collected and distributed in accordance with the wishes of the deceased.  Where there aren’t enough suitable family members to be named as executors of an estate, or perhaps there are concerns about disputes then we can act as executors and perform the estate administration duties in a fair and independent manner.

Where appropriate, our services can also include tax saving advice to ensure the estate is passed on in as efficient a manner as possible to the beneficiaries.
