Frequently Asked Questions

Should you have any questions related to our services, how probate works, our plans, pricing etc. please contact us for more infomation.
01. What happens if no one applies for probate?
If nobody applies for Probate after you die, and Probate is needed, then your beneficiaries will not receive their inheritance. The assets will be frozen as no one will have the legal authority to access or transfer them.
02. How Long after Probate is Granted will Inheritance be distributed?
For a straightforward Estate with no property and just one bank account, probate could take as little as 3 months after which beneficiaries will receive their inheritance. However,most Estates in England & Wales are more complex than this, typically taking around 6 to 9 months for beneficiaries to receive their inheritance.
03. If I leave a property which I think has development potential, should I obtain a valuation?
HM Revenue & Customs provide guidelines for the valuation of property for probate purposes which state that the executor should make reasonably thorough enquires to complete and send the Inheritance Tax account. This includes the expected sale price the property it was sold on the open market at the time of death. This valuation should take into account any development potential. A formal probate valuation can be carried out by a RICS surveyor in accordance with HM Revenue & Customs’ guidelines if you wish.
04. What are current Probate fees?
If you take out a prepaid probate plan with us, you pay just one fee. This covers the application for probate and the administration of your estate. Most banks offer probate and estate administration services but these are usually far more expensive than using one of our solicitors.
05. What if your solicitor goes bust?
The solicitors and specialist probate firms we use, have to put the funds allocated for your probate into trust. The trustees are an independent firm who are responsible for managing the trust and overseeing where it is invested. Should the firm go bust, the trustees are obligated to find a replacement firm to act for the same cost.
06. How will my loved ones know I have already paid for Probate
We recommend our solicitor writes a new updated simple will for you (you both). We pay for this (not you). In the new Will, if the solicitors names themselves as executor or join executor, then they will always be notified once you pass away. This will ensure your loved ones don’t have to do the work or pay huge fees to a different solicitor to act.
07. Isn’t the government introducing new Probate fees
They had introduced new fees which were due to commence in April , however they have now reversed the decision. Fees will remain at £215 for now.
