Acting as an executor

If you have been appointed as an executor in a will, our wills and probate lawyers can apply for a grant of probate on your behalf, removing the need for you to attend the formal interview at the probate registry.

Where an estate comprises substantial assets, such as property and investments, there can be a number of pitfalls for the inexperienced executor.

Where there is a valid will, the grant of probate is the document that gives executors authority to deal with the assets of the deceased.

If there is no will, their next of kin may need to apply to the Probate Registry for letters of administration.

Our specialist wills and probate solicitors can evaluate whether you need to apply for either of these documents. We advise and support families on wills throughout Staffordshire and West Midlands and will prepare all of the paperwork necessary for the application to be granted.

We collect in the estate and distribute it according to the will or intestacy rules, taking account of specific wishes and any inheritance tax liability.
