Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a will?

If you want control over what happens to your assets after you're gone, then yes. Without a will, your estate will be distributed according to intestacy rules, which may not align with your wishes. This could lead to potential disputes among your loved ones and your assets may not be distributed as you would have wanted.

What's involved in the probate process?

Probate involves:

  • Validating the will.
  • Assessing the deceased's assets.
  • Paying any debts or taxes.
  • Distributing the remaining estate.

We can guide you through each step.

How long does it take to get a Grant of Probate?

Typically, it takes 4-8 weeks to receive the grant once the application is submitted. However, the entire process of administering an estate can take several months.


Can I change my will?

If your circumstances change, your will should reflect that. We can help you update your will to ensure it accurately reflects your wishes, providing the flexibility you need to plan for the future.
