Probate Solicitors in Leeds

Your need when it comes to probate...

You may have lost a family member, close friend or loved one. You will need expert help and guidance whether they have left a Will or not. It is necessary first of all to identify who the executors are, or, if there is no Will, who the administrators are. Assistance will be required in compiling a list of assets e.g. property, bank accounts, shares etc and liabilities so that the net worth of the deceased can be established.

There may or may not be inheritance tax to pay. Usually, it is necessary to apply for a Grant of Probate or, if there is no Will, a Grant of Letters of Administration. Assets then need to be collected in, estate accounts prepared and monies distributed under the terms of the will or the Intestacy Rules if there is no Will.

How we can help with the probate and estate administration process...

At Emsleys Solicitors, we offer a full family bereavement service. Our probate solicitors can assist the executors or administrators in identifying assets, valuing assets and establishing the value of the estate. We can also assist in calculating any inheritance tax that may be due. We complete the forms and the application for the Grant of Representation on behalf of the executors or administrators. 

We can then collect in the assets, prepare estate accounts and distribute the estate in due course. We work in association with Emsleys Estate Agents Ltd who can assist by placing the house on the market and finding a buyer. Our probate solicitors will guide and assist you and your family at every stage.

We offer a fixed fee for obtaining a Grant of Representation only and will explain to you precisely at the outset how much our additional charges may be. We take all the worry and stress away from the family and deal with the bereaved in a sympathetic and sensitive manner.
