Probate

Landau Morley is licensed to carry out probate work.  Our specialist team will assist with applying for a Grant of Probate and dealing with all aspects of the Estate.  In the unfortunate event of a death, if you are connected to an Estate either as an executor or a close family member, we will listen to your individual circumstances and provide you with clear practical advice and support from the beginning to the end of the process.  

Probate and estate administration is a legal and financial process which happens after someone has died. It can be a very complicated and lengthy procedure to complete.

Whether you chose to carry out the probate and estate administration process yourself, or you instruct professionals to do the work for you, the application for probate is still the same and involves:

1) Finding the will

2) Applying for the grant of representation

3) Administering the estate

4) Preparing the estate accounts

5) Distributing the assets to the beneficiaries of the estate
