What is probate?
The term ‘probate’ refers to the legal process of dealing with the financial assets that belong to someone who has died. If you have been named executor in the Will of a loved one who has now passed away, you will be responsible for ensuring this process is carried out correctly. While it is possible to undertake the process yourself, it can be a complicated process that takes a long time, especially where there are a large umber of beneficiaries or the estate is high in value. Using a solicitor to help tackle the issues that arise along the way can help the process to pass smoothly and efficiently.
