When a person dies, the estate may or may not require a grant of probate (see below).
The amount of work required in administering an estate through probate can be huge. It is very time
consuming, can be confusing, long winded and requires substantial paperwork to be completed. Along
with the obvious distress and upset which naturally ensues, this can prove to be overwhelming for
many, in particular close family.
Professional probate practitioners are often required to ensure thorough smooth and legal
processing of the estate.
PWP offer a professional Probate and Executor Support Service. We can assist with the complete
probate process from beginning to end, starting with an initial executor support meeting followed by the
step by step legal administration of the estate, culminating in the handover of the signed off estate to
the executors and ultimately to the beneficiaries.
We are highly efficient, quicker and cheaper than most solicitors and legal firms.
