Probate

We offer the following packages to assist clients in dealing with deceased estates.

Our “Grant Only” Package – IHT 205

This is suitable for families who require us to provide services to obtain the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration Only and then they wish to onwardly administer the estate themselves.

This is also suitable in situations where a deceased dies in the middle of a conveyancing sale and the grant is needed to progress the sale. This involves you providing to us a list of all assets and liabilities in the estate with supporting evidence and then we generate the IHT 205 and HMCTS Statement of Truth Oath for the Executors / Administrators Signature and submission to the Probate registry.
