Probate and Estate Administration

Most people have heard of probate and estate administration. It is the process that happens after a person’s death.

Do all estates need to go through estate administration? The answer is no they don’t.  It depends on what the estate comprises of. For example if a person is the sole owner of a house, a grant of property will definitely be needed in order to sell the house

Generally, families find after a relative dies they are hurled into a world they know nothing or little about. Sorting out somebody’s estate can be quite a responsibility, not to mention time consuming, and that is why families often turn to professionals for help in getting in right.

Solicitors and banks normally charge a percentage of the estate, so the more in it, the higher the bill. Also, they sometimes will add on hourly charges  etc so it is hard to define what the final bill will be. For most families the bill is in the thousands or tens of thousands.
