Frequently asked questions

Can You Help With Probate Disputes?

If a loved one’s estate is not being managed properly, we can help you contest the will. Our specialist solicitors are experts at resolving disputes, including:

We can also help you contest the estate if there is no Will and you want to challenge how the estate has been divided up. A person’s legacy is a significant thing and it’s important to know that it’s being handled in a way that’s fair to those inheriting and doesn’t damage its value.

Estates can be very complicated, especially when there are multiple properties or international assets involved. Complex wealth structures incorporating trusts or rural estates can also present unique challenges.

Our team is the largest in the country and is experienced at dealing with disputes of all shapes and sizes. We have the expertise to help, whatever the nature of your dispute, whether you’re making a contentious probate claim or defending one.

What Is Probate? What Is A Grant Of Probate?

The word ‘probate’ is often used to refer to the entire process of administering a dead person’s estate. This involves organising their money, assets and possessions and distributing them as the will instructs – after paying any taxes and debts.

More specifically, a Grant of Probate is a legal document that confirms someone as the executor of an estate. This document gives them the authority to deal with the deceased’s assets.

If you have been named as someone’s executor in their Will, you need to apply for a Grant of Probate before you can begin administering their estate as per their instructions.

How Does The Probate Process Work?

Every estate and every Will is different. The exact probate process can vary depending on the instructions left in the Will and the assets, creditors, and beneficiaries the estate has. The basic process for an executor is:

  1. Gather the full details of the estate’s assets and debts
  2. Apply for Grant of Probate (permission to administer the estate and pass out inheritance)
  3. Complete an inheritance tax return and pay any tax due
  4. You receive a Grant of Probate
  5. Repay any of the deceased’s outstanding debts
  6. Distribute the rest of the estate according to the instructions left in the Will.

Probate can also be complicated if there are any disputes between the executor, beneficiaries, creditors, or HMRC. Our solicitors can advise on or help with any stage of the probate process. We can help if disputes are stopping you from making progress or can even take over your duties as executor entirely.
