Do you have a will?
We hear of many reasons why our clients have not made a Will earlier than they did. Nearly two in every three people who die in Britain do so with out a Will.

The importance of a Will can not be over estimated.

Why is it important to have a will?
It is important because:

  • Writing a Will is neither costly nor a time consuming process – in fact a Will could save you money in the long run
  • A Will ensures that your property and assets are left and distributed in direct accordance with your wishes. If you do not have a Will your property and assets may be left to some one you do not want to have them or to the Crown
  • A Will could prevent your loved ones from falling out or being saddled with a large Inheritance Tax Bill
  • A Will can appoint a guardian to look after your children – a Will provides peace of mind that your loved ones will be cared for by the people you would want
  • A Will can make provision for children from a previous partnership to ensure they receive what they are entitled to
  • A Will can make provision for handicapped or elderly relatives
  • If you are not married or in a civil partnership, without a Will, your long term partner will not benefit from your estate

Robinson’s Solicitors are able to give you peace of mind that by drafting your Will your property and assets will be looked after in the way you wish.

What is probate?
“Probate” is the term used by the legal professional to describe the process of administering a deceased person’s Estate in accordance with their wishes (if they left a Will) or by the set of compulsory rules known as the intestacy rules (if they left no Will). The term “probate” can also be used to describe the process of obtaining probate or the Grant of Probate/Representation. The Grant is the legal document that is issued by the Probate Registry when a person dies to the Executors (if there is a Will) or to the Administrators (if there is no Will). The Grant enables asset holders to close accounts and release monies held by the deceased to the Estate. Executors/Administrators will not be able to arrange the release of assets or indeed Completing the sale of any property held by the deceased until the Grant has been obtained.

The type of Grant applied for will depend on whether the deceased left a Will or not. A “Grant of Probate” is obtained when the deceased left a Will and the “Grant of Letters of Administration” is applied for when the deceased did not make a Will.

The procedure for obtaining the Grant is a complicated. Robinson’s Solicitors can assist in obtaining the Grant.

Have you been appointed as executor?
It may be that you are a named executor in the will of a family member or friend and your other commitments are such that you are unable or unwilling to act as executor, this happens a lot and you shouldn't feel that you are letting down the deceased. In fact, by realising you can't assist and finding professional help you are actually doing the deceased a favour by making sure that their estate is maximised and distributed according to their wishes and as quickly as possible.

We can help relieve you of the burden of being an executor and deal with all the requirements and obligations of an executor on your behalf, this will involve obtaining the grant of probate, determining the location of and the gathering in all the deceased's assets and making sure that they are distributed in an expedient and tax-saving way.
