Frequently asked questions
Do you need a solicitor to deal with probate?
In simple cases, you may not need a solicitor to deal with probate, but we would advise you not to complete the legal process alone unless you are confident you understand what this entails. If there are any doubts about the will, it is always best to proceed with the support of a specialist probate solicitor. This will help to protect your interests and ensure the will is carried out as intended.
How long does probate take?
This all depends on the individual circumstances. In general, it will take between 3 and 4 months to obtain a Grant of Probate. Following this, the administration of the estate can take between 2 and 6 months. The total time will typically depend on the assets to be collected, debts to be paid and the identification of the beneficiaries.
Do I have to choose a probate solicitor in Birmingham?
No, you don’t have to choose a local probate solicitor in Birmingham, but many find it helpful to have the support of a local firm. This can make meetings easier and can reduce the time it takes to process documentation.
Can a house be sold before probate is granted in the UK?
A house may be put on the market, but the sale cannot be finalised until probate has been granted. We can advise on the steps required to sell a property that is part of an estate, and recommend steps to free up assets in the meantime.
