Probate Matters & Advice
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.

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.

He has made me feel like I’m his only Client, so thank you so much Nigel for caring enough to deal with us.
Doreen – Nigel came to our house as my mum needed to make a new will. He was very professional but at the same time was friendly and easy going and that instantly put my mum at ease. He explained everything really well and l don’t think l could have found anyone better.
Thank you Nigel
