Probate Solicitors

Dealing with the death of a loved one is hard enough without the added strain of dealing with the legalities involved in administering the estate.

You will want to know that the bills can be paid and the assets are protected. You will want to know that the estate is administered correctly and in accordance with the Will or relevant statutory rules.

Curwens offer you a professional but highly sympathetic approach to help you deal with the legal technicalities of obtaining probate. We will keep you in control of a potentially difficult situation and always be there to explain what can be at times a long and complex process.

We offer a flexible service ranging from a one off fixed fee meeting of advice, undertaking specific aspects of estate administration right through to completing the entire process on your behalf.

Probate is the procedure followed by the Executors or Personal Representatives after a person has died. They will need to swear an oath to obtain Grant of Probate which will give them the powers needed to administer the estate, for example, to distribute monies to beneficiaries under the Will (or the intestacy rules) and to transfer land or shares. If you have been appointed to act as an Executor by someone you have sadly lost then we can help you to relieve the stress and emotion of dealing with probate. We will work with you or deal with matters entirely should you wish. For smaller, less complex estates we offer a fixed fee.
