What is probate?

Probate is a legal term often used to describe the entire process of settling someone’s estate when they die. It can also simply refer to the process of applying for, and receiving, a grant of probate: a legal document that can be used to prove your right to administer an estate.

Many probate solicitors and specialists offer a full service - getting the grant, gathering up the estate and transferring it on to those who should inherit. Others just deal with the grant application. Here at Beyond, we can do both: just tell us what you need, and our expert legal team will take care of it.

What is a fixed-fee probate service?

While some probate solicitors will charge you an hourly rate, or take a percentage of the estate, we will tell you our fee up front, right at the beginning.

Once that probate fee is set, it will stay the same.

Do I need probate?

If it’s a small estate, you may not need a grant of probate to access things like bank accounts. If you are the spouse of someone who has died, and all property, assets and funds were held jointly, you will also likely be able to access the estate without one.

But there are a lot of other things to think about when it comes to settling the estate - making sure that tax forms are filled out correctly, notifying the right companies, paying debts, setting up trusts and any number of other small details. We can help with that.

When you call our probate helpline, we’ll ask you a few simple questions to check whether you really need professional help, and if so, which of our probate services best fits your situation. And if you don’t need us - the call hasn’t cost you a thing.

There’s no will - what do I do?

When someone dies without leaving a will (known as dying ‘intestate’), their estate is inherited by their closest living relative - usually their spouse or their children.

The probate process is much the same, except that letters of administration are applied for instead of a grant of probate (see above). You can still use a probate service to sort out the estate.

Don’t I need a probate solicitor to do probate?

There is no requirement to use a solicitor for probate. We do have qualified legal and financial specialists on our team who have helped thousands of families through the probate process. However, we don’t call ourselves probate solicitors or lawyers, because our team is made up of all kinds of experts, all of whom handle probate all day, every day.

Legally, anyone can take on the responsibility of probate administration, although many prefer to leave this complicated and stressful task to a professional.

I already have a family solicitor for probate...

It’s a good idea to compare probate professionals on price and the services they include before settling on one. You can change your probate provider even if your family solicitor is named as one of the executors in the will.

When comparing will and probate services, helpful questions to ask are: the professional / solicitor’s fees for probate; whether that fee is a percentage of the estate, an hourly rate, or a fixed fee; whether the fee will increase in the event of a claim or complication; and what they will do in return for that fee.
