Fixed Fee Probate Services


Probate is technically: “The process of legally establishing the validity of a Will before a judicial authority”

So, probate is only a small part of the whole process of estate administration.

It is the responsibility of the Executors appointed in a Will to administer the Estate, but there is more to the role than many people realise. Executors duties include:

The moment the Testator dies, the role of the Executor(s) begins and there are some very important initial duties
Securing the assets. They are now legally responsible for the assets of the Testator and may need to secure the property and belongings e.g. change the locks on the property, switch off utilities etc
Insure the assets .They must ensure that the house and contents are insured.
Arrange the funeral, which is an Executor duty, but normally involves the family
Assess the death estate assets & liabilities
Calculate whether there is an Inheritance Tax Liability, complete the relative forms, agree with HMRC and arrange to pay HMRC.
Arrange for the Grant of Probate, which gives legal authority to the executors to deal with the Estate
Call in assets
Pay debts and liabilities
Complete Estate Accounts
Distribute the estate according to the Will

Sadly many family members are appointed as executors in Wills and have no idea of the responsibility and often do not know they have been appointed in the Will until the Testator dies.

The great news is that Executors who do not feel able to complete the role can appoint Assured Probate Services to deal with the estate administration taking away the burden when many are grieving.

Our Executor and Probate service

An executor is responsible for administering the estate and distributing the assets in accordance with the Will. Sometimes a loved one may die without having left a Will, however their estate must still be dealt with according to the Law. To ensure that your wishes and those of your loved ones are adhered to and in accordance with the rules and laws of probate, it is standard and a worthwhile practice to appoint a professional and experienced firm.

Here at Assured Probate Services we are proud to lead the way in caring and responsible probate and estate administration. We provide an incomparable and cost effective service where we will administer the estate from start to finish for a fixed fee. Our fees really do provide affordable peace of mind.
