Frequently asked questions
Can any solicitor manage probate?
There is no legal requirement to use a probate solicitor, but we believe that experience and expertise in probate law are both essential to a successful outcome. While you don’t have to hire any solicitor to manage probate, there are considerable benefits to working with one. If you’re unsure how we can help to manage the process, get in touch with our team today.
Do I have to work with a probate solicitor in Sutton Coldfield?
There is no requirement to work with a local solicitor, but we find it can be helpful. You may need to visit the offices to deliver documents and this can be easier when it is a local solicitor. If you are outside of Sutton Coldfield or would find it difficult to visit our offices, we are equipped to handle the probate process remotely.
How long does probate take?
This all depends on the circumstances of the case, including the assets, debts and beneficiaries. It will usually take around 3-4 months to obtain the Grant of Probate, and then a further 2-6 months for the administration of the estate.
How long after death do you have to apply for probate?
You will have to apply for probate within 6 months of the death. This is because there is a time limit on reporting the inheritance to HMRC. Since you have to report the value of the estate to HMRC before applying for probate, this will have to be completed within 6 months.
