Probate Matters

Probate Services Nottingham

Probate is a greatly misunderstood subject and causes some confusion when someone passes away. It can be a complex area and it can also be relatively straightforward.

We can work with you to ensure that all the correct documentation is provided. For Probate services and advice across Nottingham, Derby, Sheffield, the Midlands, the South and beyond – get in touch today.

Call us on 0800 689 0923

The main thing to understand is that a Grant of Probate is only a requirement if a financial institution requests it after the death of someone.

In a way it is an official “proving of the Will” by HM Courts & Tribunals.

You will generally find that anyone who has Assets over a certain amount in their Estate on their death will have their personal representatives also known as the Executives having to apply for a Grant of Probate before these financial institutions will release any money due.

We offer a free, no obligation consultation at a time to suit you, to discuss your needs.

Request a callback with our form below.


Preparing Probate Documents

Often the confusion is caused because bank A may request a Grant with savings of say £20,000 however bank B are happy to release funds of say £25,000 without the need for a Grant.

Executors have a choice to complete Probate themselves or they can choose professionals to complete the task.

Grant Applications and Inheritance Tax

We offer a highly competitive alternative to most providers by offering the choice of a full service and working the Grant application from start to finish and advise and take care of any inheritance tax issues.

Alternatively we can provide help and support in just part of the work to be undertaken and work alongside the appointed Executors therefore reducing the costs.

Either way will be totally transparent with costs and offer highly competitive packages to help in this often difficult area.

We are also able to work with our other partners should we have a larger and much more complex case, which helps save time and money in providing a solution.

Nisita Vadher – We found NJ legal services online when we were searching for a solicitor to write out a will for my parents. I received a call back within a couple of hours of requesting this service. Nigel was incredibly helpful and explained the procedure in great detail. We were unsure of how this process worked and he had made sure to break down the process for us making it very simple and easy to understand. All of our questions were answered for us and the process took no longer than 1 hour! We are incredibly happy with the service that we have received and will definitely be recommending NJ Legal services to all our family and friends. Thank you very much Nigel.

Mrs V Billing – Nigel Johnson is the most professional and helpful friendly solicitor I have ever had the privilege too speak with. We have been in contact by phone and letters over the last few weeks sorting out my husband and my wills etc. If you have any queries he is just a phone call away and has a lot of patience, explaining things thoroughly. Excellent service highly recommended.
