Probate

Administering the estate of a loved one whilst at the same time going through the grieving process is often extremely stressful.

We can help you through every step of administering an estate and the probate process. We can help you with as little or as much of the paperwork and process as you wish.

For example where you may need a ‘grant of probate’. That is the process, where there is a will involved, that confirms the executors’ authority to deal with the estate.

Getting a grant of probate can be time consuming and stressful. There is involvement with the courts and you will need to pay fees for a personal application. rhw can help prepare all the papers and apply to the court on your behalf.

We are aware that you will probably have a lot of questions. Our team will listen carefully to what you require. We’ll explain your options and the process in clear language and provide the best possible professional guidance on how to move forward.

Having professional help with the estate administration (probate) lifts a burden from the executors or next of kin and an independent presence can also be helpful where there may be conflict between family members.

How rhw's team can help you...

It is our aim to deal with the administration efficiently and to make the task as straightforward as possible. As experienced probate practitioners, we are alert for tax saving opportunities and can advise on your options.

The partners of the firm are also willing to act as personal representatives if there are no relatives or close friends who can undertake the task.

We charge for estate administration on the basis of the time we spend on the matter. We do not charge a percentage of the value of the estate.

If you have been quoted a fixed fee for a probate matter, speak to us before you accept it. Often fixed fee deals are considerably more expensive than the alternative!

rhw also specialise in contested probate and the long term care of the elderly.
