Probate Matters

Probate Nottingham, Derby & Sheffield

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.

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.

    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.

    Give us a call to discuss probate services today on 0800 689 0923, or visit our contact page for more details.

    Client reviews

    Mr Fred Spencer – A friend of mine sent me the document written by Nigel, which was mainly about reducing the care fees that may be charged by our local council if either myself, or my wife needed to go into care. I found the document to be very informative and easy to understand. I then decided to talk to Nigel about what we may need to do in terms of our own Estate planning. Within minutes of talking to Nigel, he made me feel that he really had our interests at heart and he gave me quite a bit of free advice. As a result of this advice, we decided to commission NJ Legal Services to draw up new wills for us both and to change the ownership details of our property with the Land Registry. I would not hesitate to recommend NJ Legal Services and obviously, Nigel in particular, to friends and family. A truly easy and friendly experience.
