Probate Matters and 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.

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.

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.
