Probate & Estate Adminstration
Don’t know which way to turn? Whether you need to apply for probate or administer an estate we’ll guide you along the right path.
GESols recognise that applying for probate or administering an estate after the death of someone close can seem unimportant, stressful and overwhelming, leaving you not knowing which way to turn.
When a death occurs, the assets of the deceased require distribution and there are many issues to be addressed and administrative obligations involved. This can be made simple when the deceased has left a valid Will but can be far more complex if there is an invalid will or no Will at all leaving assets to be distributed in accordance with the law.
At GESols, our dedicated team can provide practical advice on the immediate steps to be taken following bereavement, the administration of a will and other associated legal matters making the process as worry free as possible. Furthermore, we are able to deal with the estate for you should you so wish.
Gavin leads our private client team with the administrative help of his secretary and our paralegals. We aim to deal with an estate in six months, but this is only a guide and may change dependant on the circumstances. We typically charge £300 per hour, plus VAT, throughout a probate case. We also charge, on average, 2% of the value of the estate.
The estate would too be liable for any disbursements incurred, i.e. any costs to payable to other organisations, along with any VAT they attract. In a standard probate matter we would estimate the cost of disbursements to be approximately £300.00, but again this is all dependent on circumstance.
GESols have sympathetic lawyers who can provide support and assistance. If you require support or guidance whatever your situation and you’re not sure which way to turn – contact us!
