Probate

Probate is the legal process to deal with the deceased affairs such as money, property and possessions. Different rules apply in England & Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland so please check the government website www.gov.uk

The first step is to understand if you need to apply for probate. Normally probate is not required if the deceased had joint accounts or property investments.

  • Who / how can you apply for probate?
  • Executors of the Will if one is in place
  • If no Will exists, then the closest living relative
  • You can apply yourself online at the government website www.gov.uk or use a solicitor
  • Usually this takes 16 weeks from the date of application, longer if the information provided is not complete.
