Probate In Northern Ireland
Losing a member of your family or a very close friend is extremely distressing. You will be going through many different emotions and trying to come to terms with what has happened. If, on top of your grief, you have to carry out the wishes of your loved one by having to execute their will, the pressure can be hard to deal with.
We do understand what a trying and difficult time this is in your life and we, as probate solicitors, can release this burden from you to allow you the time to grieve properly.
What is Probate And How Does It Work?
Quite simply, probate is the process you have to carry out to execute a will. There are a number of things that you will have to do, for example applying for a grant of probate. This is done if there is a will. If there is no will, then the process is slightly different. It would be wise to utilise probate solicitors like us to help you.
You will need to ensure that any inheritance tax payable, is paid prior to obtaining the grant of probate. Inheritance tax is payable on estates over £325,000. There are tax exemptions available, so it is worth talking to us about your options regarding taxes as these can be complicated.
We can assist you with any property which needs to be sold and ensure that any outstanding bills or debts are cleared and once this has been completed, the distribution of assets, money and possessions can start.
We are experienced probate lawyers and we can help you to process the probate of your loved one as quickly and efficiently as possible, and with the least amount of involvement by you, which will leave you time to be able to grieve.
We will explain how the whole process works and talk to you about how long each stage will take. The cost will be clear and easy to understand and we can offer you a competitive price for using us, as we are experienced probate solicitors in Belfast.
