Probate is a process whereby a will is validated by a court. Many executors of an estate will apply to the court for a Grant of Probate, although it is not always necessary. Sometimes third parties, such as financial institutions, will not rely on a Will unless its validity has been determined by a court. If your loved one does not leave a Will behind, an application for a certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee Without a Will may be necessary. Whatever the circumstance, our estate lawyers have the experience required to assist you in a timely manner.
Our services include:
- Court applications for certificates;
- Ascertaining the assets of the deceased;
