Whatever level of support you need, our expert team of estate administration and probate lawyers at Glanvilles can help you with:

  • Probate - the legal process of administering a deceased person’s estate, made up of money, property and possessions owned at the time death. Where a Will has been left, the estate will pass to those named in the Will. Without a Will, the Rules of Intestacy will apply where next of kin, or a suitable family member, will be appointed to act on behalf of the estate.
  • Applying for grant of probate - property and assets that make up an estate will stay frozen until the Probate Registry gives authority by means of a Grant of Representation or Grant of Probate document. We can help you with applications for the Grant of Representation or Grant of Probate where there is an executor nominated in a Will.
  • Letters of administration – where there is no Will in place, we can help you obtain a letter of administration from Court to obtain the legal authority needed to deal with a deceased person’s estate.
  • Collecting monies owed – we can help you complete all the necessary forms and paperwork to ensure any money that is owed to the estate is collected quickly and efficiently.
  • Estate valuation - for probate and tax purposes.
  • The preparation of estate accounts.
  • The preparation of interest and inheritance tax returns.
  • Tax planning – we can advise you on post death tax planning that may reduce any inheritance tax and capital gains tax liabilities.
  • Paying any outstanding debts - which might include outstanding taxes or care home fees.
  • Probate sales and the sale of estate assets and property - we can help you with the sale of property or land or arrange the transfer or sale of shares.
  • Dividing the estate between beneficiaries.
  • Closing bank accounts and stopping pensions.
  • Interpreting a Will or correcting a mistake in a Will – we can help you apply to the Court to interpret or correct a Will in the circumstances where a Will is unclear or inaccurate.
  • Contentious probate – when you need help contesting or defending a Will.
  • Intestacy – we can help you when there is no Will, or when a Will is found to be invalid, where the Rules of Intestacy will apply to the division of assets.
