Dying with a Will

Providing a fully bespoke service

If someone dies, leaving a will, it will usually name one or more people to administer their estate who are also known as executors. If you are named as an executor of a will you may need to apply for a Grant of Probate. A Grant of Probate is an official document which the executors may need to administer the estate. It is issued by a section of the court known as the Probate Registry.

At Browell Smith & Co Solicitors, our experts can help you through this complicated process making it less stressful. We will ensure that the wishes of the deceased are carried out and often, we can help you finalise matters more quickly than you can on your own.

Executors are responsible for making sure that the estate is administered correctly. The executor must make sure that the wishes of the person who has died, as set out in their will, are followed.

At Browell Smith & Co we can provide fully bespoke service fitting your requirements from extracting the Grant of Probate to a full estate administration service where we can take on the entire administration depending upon your requirements.

Being an executor is a heavy burden. It can be time-consuming and legally complex. For example, you have a responsibility to report to the Inland Revenue and the Probate Registry. You may also have to resolve disputes between family members.
