In simple terms, probate means dealing with a person’s affairs after their death in accordance with their Will or intestacy (where there is no Will). We fully understand this can be a difficult time for the person’s family and friends.

At Hudsons Solicitors, we can handle every aspect of probate, from simply applying for the Grant of Probate on behalf of the executors, to dealing with all aspects of the administration of an estate, such as informing banks and utility companies of the person’s death, arranging valuations of property, shareholdings, land etc, completing HM Revenue & Customs paperwork, calculating inheritance tax, applying for the Grant of Probate, closing accounts and realising assets, and finally distributing the estate to the beneficiaries.

We will be happy to discuss various fee charging structures to suit you, including fixed fees, or fees calculated by reference to an hourly rate. Throughout the process, we’ll keep you fully informed, and deal with any questions or concerns promptly and sympathetically.
