Probate is the process whereby an executor is granted the legal right to administer and wind up a deceased’s estate.
It involves the filing of legal, financial and tax information about the deceased’s estate to the appropriate authorities, including:
This can be a complex and confusing process which family members must sort out whilst dealing with the loss of a loved one, but at Jefferies Probate we can ease this burden for you.
Jefferies Probate Limited are authorised by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) to provide non-contentious probate services.
The amount of involvement we have in each probate case depends on how much work the family or executors want to do themselves.
For some families, we have simply overseen the process, providing guidance on what is required during each step. In other cases, we have completed and submitted the different forms to the relevant authorities and have handled the whole process.
We have worked on estates involving distant relatives, non-domiciled individuals, as well as estates involving annual gifts and transfers.
We can do as much or as little as required in order to complete the process in a satisfactory manner. As a result, we tend to be more cost effective than say solicitors or banks, who generally want to handle the whole probate process, and charge you accordingly!
To help explain the probate process, we have written a couple of blogs, which we hope you will find useful, please click on the links below:

“I recently went to Keith to ask him to arrange a Grant of Probate as I was the executor of a Will. I was very pleased at how quickly and professionally he did this for me. And his fee was considerably less than I was quoted by a solicitor.” David Reynolds
