Making a Will
Making a Will is usually straightforward and inexpensive, but it could save your family from misunderstanding and distress. A Will is an important document as it enables you to share your final wishes about how your assets are to be shared when you are not physically here to do it.
If you do not have a will, then this can cause distress for your loved ones as your estate will be shared according to the rules of intestacy. Under these rules, the first £270,000 of an estate, plus all personal possessions and half of the remaining amount, passes to the spouse or civil partner of the deceased. Any children receive what is left.
Probate solicitors in Leicester
Probate is the legal process of managing a deceased’s estate (everything they own) when they die. If the person who has died owned property or significant assets in their sole name, then probate will be required.
When someone dies leaving money or property, there can be a lot of work involved to settle their affairs, which can be overwhelming when you are grieving. There's no need to wait until after the funeral to make the initial contact with a probate solicitor, and there may be advice or reassurance we can give you early on.
A full step-by-step process of how probate works can be found in our blog What is probate, and how does the process work?
