Probate & Administration

Unlocking Peace of Mind for You and Your Loved Ones

At Yates Legal, we understand that navigating the complexities of probate and estate administration can be emotionally challenging and stressful. We are here to guide you through every step, offering compassionate support and expert legal advice to ensure a smooth and efficient process.

What Is Probate?

Probate is the legal process that takes place after the death of an individual. It involves validating the will, if one exists, and distributing assets to beneficiaries in accordance with the deceased’s wishes or, if there is no Will, according to the intestacy rules.

Our probate team is experienced in the intricacies of the probate process and can assist you in:
  • Filing the necessary documents with HMRC and/or the Probate Registry;
  • Identifying and valuing assets;
  • Settling outstanding debts and taxes;
  • Distributing assets to beneficiaries
