At Lodge Brothers Probate Walton, we approach our Probate West Byfleet services with the same high levels of quality advice and personal investment, as we do with all legal services. We know that when a person finds themselves in need of the services of a Legal firm, often the circumstances which surround this need, are inevitably highly stressful. When people find themselves in these stressful situations, quite often exacerbated by the fact that one does not always know what to do for the best and make the right decisions.

Notwithstanding, often people do not know what needs to be taken care of, simply because they do not have experience with being in these types of situations previously. It is easy to understand how over-whelming certain life events can be, when someone realises all of the legal requirements involved. Legal compliance is not something that we believe a person should have to face on their own.

That’s why we partner with our clients during these times of excessive strain and guide them through the process. Lodge Brothers has firms across the UK, such as our Probate Sunbury, office and its here that you can rest assured that you will always find empathetic professionals to offer you an efficient service when you most need it.

Designed to relieve you of the heavy burden you face when dealing with the probate process, our level 3 Gold Probate services ensure that probate is obtained quickly and efficiently.

A grant of probate is the confirmation authorising who is the executor who has been elevated to administer the estate of someone who has passed away. The service of probate includes finalising the affairs of the deceased in terms of their finances and assets. Logistical it is by far the most difficult part of the passing of someone is the allocation of these assets and finalisation of the estate as a whole. Before anyone can start to deal with the allocation of assets to heirs of the estate there are other fundamental aspects which will need to be addresses, such as attending to the bank account of the departed. In order for anyone to have the authority to deal with the bank account of a person who has passed, they will need to request a grant of probate in order to act on their behalf. Something like this is easier if arranged prior to the event of your passing and will leave less for your family to consider while they grieve your loss.

Are there instances where a grant of probate Feltham is not required in order to finalise an estate. Lodge Brothers Legal Services attorneys confirm that while there are some instances where this is not required, it is not often something that can be avoided. In an instance where the deceased is a minor child, the parent or legal guardian will be able to attend to the closing of the bank account of the minor child. In situations like this, no will come into play as one needs to be of legal age in order for a will to be recognised. Another instance when probate would not be required is when the estate is worth less than £10,000.

Some of the time, a person may have a joint bank account with another who survives them and who is the recipient of the estate automatically in the event of passing. In a situation like this, probate will not be required however it is always highly recommended that this be confirmed and not simply assumed. An executor would be required to correspond with the banking and other institutions in order to confirm the passing of the person and provide them with proof of death in the form of a death certificate. Once done the application for probate Woking can be avoided as long as everything is in order. If that is not the case then probate will need to be applied for in the usual way, using your legal attorney as an impartial expert who will be able to guide you seamlessly and safely through the process.

Probate and lasting power of attorney

Due to the legalities associated with the passing of an individual, there may be a need for the family of the deceased to seek the assistance of qualified attorneys. Specifically in instances where the estate is high net which can become more difficult to administer. The administrator of the estate has the obligation to tie up the estate of the deceased which includes both the assets and liabilities attached to the estate. A person’s estate can be complex and in any instance where no Will was drawn up, the estate is made even more difficult to administer. If the estate executor is not from a legal background, then certainly the most beneficial and expedient manner of dealing with the logistics of the estate, especially during this particularly distressing time, would be to engage with a Probate Guildford attorney.

Families and estate administrators who require assistance with any of these legal areas, are able to contact Legal Brothers in the following areas, for Probate Ashford, Probate Feltham, Probate Woking, Probate Weybridge, Probate Sunbury, Probate Shepperton, Probate West Byfleet and Probate Walton.

An executor of an estate is responsible for locating all of the financial documentation pertaining to organisations who have provided financial assistance to the departed individual and advising them of the demise of the individual which has now become an estate. The administer of the estate would need to establish the financial value of the estate and ensure that bank account are frozen so that no person, who is not entitled to access the money of the departed individual, has access to the funds he or she may have accrued. New accounts will be opened on the estate’s behalf which will be used to administer any inheritance taxes issues from Inland Revenue and attend to other debts and liabilities which need to be paid from the estate.

Documentation includes preparing Probate papers which are to be issued to the Probate registry in order to attain a Grant of Probate or a Grant of Letter of Administration, which will enable the executor to process the settlement of the liabilities and administer the assets of the state in the manner required in the legal Will of the deceased, or if there is no written will, in line with requirements of the intestate estate instructed by the probate court. In the eventuality that the Will be found as being invalid, probate court will need to take over the directions of possessions in line with beneficiary designation prescribed by the court.

The law and the linguistics associated with it, are often difficult to fully understand.

WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING AN UP TO DATE WILL?

Only 30% of people in this country have made a Will. This is because we do not like thinking about death and we are unaware of the importance of having a professionally drafted Will. Once a person overcomes their fears and makes a Will they find that it is a positive step that gives them great peace of mind. They are reassured that their affairs are in order.

If you die without a Will you die “intestate” meaning the intestacy laws set out which of your family members inherit and the amount. Your spouse will not necessarily inherit all of your estate and if you are unmarried your Partner will not inherit anything.

A legally valid Will, carefully prepared by a qualified expert Solicitor, will ensure that:

you provide for your loved ones in the way you wish;

you choose the Executors who will administer your estate;

you choose the Guardians for your minor children; and

you can take steps to reduce the Inheritance Tax payable.

You can also choose to appoint Lodge Brothers Legal Services as the Executors of your Will. We will ensure that your estate is dealt with promptly and efficiently so that your loved ones do not have the responsibility but do receive their inheritance as quickly as possible.

Fixed fee for a single Will starting from £325 +VAT (£390 inc. VAT).

Fixed fee for mirror Wills starting from £500 +VAT (£600 inc. VAT).

All our fees are fixed and agreed in advance.

Our professional services offer peace of mind to you and your family.
