Save money on probate
We have the means to get quotes lower than any other UK probate provider whilst not sacrificing quality of service. We use a panel of STEP qualified Solicitors.
Probate is required when the deceased leaves assets worth more than £5000.
This could include any of the following.
- Property – owned in their sole name OR as “tenants in common”
- Stocks and share
- Insurance Policies
- Assets worth a substantial amount.
Normally if the assets are worth less than £5000 there is not much need to go through 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.
