Inevitably a Solicitor for the Elderly is involved in this type of legal work.
On death, someone should deal with the deceased’s affairs. This is called ‘administering the estate’. If there is a Will the executors apply for a Grant of Probate. Without a Will the rules of intestacy apply and looking at the flow chart on this site will show who can make the application for the Grant of Letters of Administration
Clair Dunkerley and her team at TMJ Legal Services offer two probate services: –
- Grant extraction only
We can simply organise obtaining a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration if you do not require help with the actual administration of the estate.
TMJ Legal Services’ charge for this service is a fixed fee of £400 plus VAT; you will need to pay the Court fee.
- Estate Administration
Estate administration is an area of law where there could be significant benefits from advice and assistance. Administration of estates can be complicated and confusing at what is a difficult time emotionally. We offer an efficient service and have a fair pricing policy. We can offer fixed fees and do not charge a percentage of the value of the estate.
TMJ Legal Services prides itself on offering a transparent charging policy. It costs less to use our firm than Co-op Legal Services and ICT. Why is this? Probably because TMJ Legal Services does not pay referral fees.
When the estate is professionally administered, there are great advantages for the executor/administrator in that it is done independently and the problem of opening an estate account and distributing funds is resolved. It also has the advantage of transparency and a completely impartial approach.
