Probate is requested by institutions when they are dealing with assets of a substantial value that are held in the deceased’s sole name. Every institution in the UK will usually have a probate threshold which determines if they will subsequently request for the grant.

This could include any of the following.
  1. Property – owned in their sole name OR as “tenants in common”
  2. Stocks and share
  3. Money
  4. Insurance Policies
  5. Assets worth a substantial amount.
Normally if the assets are worth less than £5000 there is no necessity to apply for probate. There are exceptions and in some cases probate is still required. A bank may insist on seeing a grant of probate when there is no will and some insurance policies may require probate if they need to be paid into the estate rather than being paid to a specific beneficiary.
You should bear in mind that even if there is no individual asset that requires probate if the deceased gave away a significant value in gifts in the 7 years prior to their death their estate may still be eligible for inheritance tax. If this is the case it is highly advised to seek professional guidance.
