Do I need Probate?

Not all estates will require a Grant or Representation.  Estates which are worth less than £5,000 do not usually require one and some organisations will release assets to a Personal Representative without a Grant, however, they each have their own requirements and will need to be contacted.  For further advice or to speak to one of our experts call 01908 689317.

We'll take care of matters so you don't have to.
