Why Should I Use a Solicitor for advice on Probate?

Posted on 26th March, 2018

“Probate” is often a term that frightens people when they are thinking of what they need to in the aftermath of the death of a loved one.

Probate is generally understood to be the court documentation required to allow the release of certain types of assets, such as property and various types of accounts and investments. The term is more formally known as a Grant of Probate where the person has died having made a Will or Letters of Administration, if the person has not made a Will.

Whilst you can apply for these grants personally, or use the services of a non-solicitor, the below explains the benefits of using one of our team at Jacksons Law Firm:
