* One of our probate specialists will arrange to meet with your Executors to advise them on the best course of action, helping them to effectively carry out the wishes in your Will. After being notified of your death, our probate specialist will examine all the information concerning your estate and affairs and advise your Executors how to obtain a grant of probate.

We provide letter templates to assist your Executors when contacting the organisations who hold your assets, and show them how to complete the complex forms required to obtain probate and successfully administer your estate.
