By writing a Will, you can spare your surviving friends and family a great deal of difficulty and uncertainty by specifying exactly what you wish to happen when you pass away. These documents also allow you to make sure that your estate (your money and property) is passed onto the people and organisations you care about.
If you do not arrange a valid will before you pass away, you are considered “intestate” and your estate will be shared out in line with UK law, not your wishes. So, while arranging a will is something that most people would happily postpone, it is essential for ensuring that your wealth is divided fairly in line with your wishes.
Probate is the process of executing someone’s will after they die – and can include paying outstanding bills, distributing property, paying tax, etc. – and varies a lot between cases.
Probate can be a difficult and complicated process, especially if you are grieving, so seeking expert help may be the best way to honour your family member or friend’s wishes. Our specialist Probate solicitors can help you with every step of the process, making it a simple and (relatively) stress-free process for you by helping with:
- Registering the death
- Finding the Will
- Applying for probate, arranging inheritance tax etc.
