The Abacus Wills & Trusts Probate Service

Once an individual dies their Will (which must have been ‘proved’ in a court of law), will go into probate. This is where the executor of the Will, will apply to get a ‘grant of representation’ or a ‘grant of probate’ to access the estate of the deceased person and distribute it according to the Will. An individual can apply for the grant of probate, as can a solicitor on an individual’s behalf, or an external person licensed to provide a probate service.

Grant of Probate

The granting of probate is the initial step in the process of administering the estate according to the deceased’s wishes. This will also involve settling any unresolved financial matters and such before distributing the assets.

We will also ensure that any document we create for you is low cost, competitive and we’ll endeavor to beat any quote from elsewhere, all whilst always maintaining our professional standards.
