What is Probate?
Probate is the entire process of administering a deceased persons estate. This involves organising their money, assets and possessions and distributing them as inheritance (after paying any taxes and debts).

Writing a will is incredibly important, especially if you have children or step-children. If you do not leave a will, the law will decide how your money and assets are distributed and this is a lengthy process, that may not be in line with your wishes.
Not only can we help you to gain the peace of mind of knowing your wishes will be carried out, but we can also give you advice and guidance on inheritance tax and probate law.
