Probate

Personal Representatives are the individuals named in the will to act as Executors or the next of kin of someone who has left no will.

As a Personal Representative you may need to apply for a legal document known as a Grant of Probate which enables you to deal with the assets in the estate.

The responsibilities involved in being a Personal Representative can be quite stressful and complex especially at what will more than likely be a distressing time.

To help you ‘obtain probate’ and relieve the burden, the team at Rowlinsons can assist with a range of duties, including:

• Evaluating the size of the estate;
• Ascertaining whether any Inheritance Tax is payable;
• Completing the Inheritance Tax forms;
• Drafting the appropriate Oath to enable the Grant of Probate to be obtained (if the deceased left a Will) or
• Obtaining a Grant of Letters of Administration if the deceased died without making a Will or left a Will appointing no Executors.

Our team can assist with all aspects of the estate administration including closing Bank / Building Society accounts, transferring / selling land or residential property and ultimately distributing the assets to the beneficiaries of the estate.
