Probate during Coronavirus Pandemic.
We continue to provide an expert wills service. This is not affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
If a relative or friend has died we can guide you through every step of the process of dealing with their estate, from assisting with the funeral arrangements and payment, through to distributing their belongings and money.
A lot of people are concerned that they can’t get legal help during the coronavirus pandemic but our probate service is running as usual using video calls, phone and email to help you, instead of face to face meetings.
The Coronavirus Act 2020 has made temporary changes to the law which will affect the registration of deaths and some funeral arrangements. Please contact us for information about how this may affect you.
Our Probate experts can guide you through the process of valuing the estate and making the application to Court for probate, including dealing with the inheritance tax return.
We want to work with you to avoid any additional distress in dealing with your loved one’s estate, despite the restrictions caused by Covid-19.
At Glaisyers we know that the law can seem confusing if someone didn’t make a will before they died. We can help you make sure the person’s finances are dealt with properly and our sympathetic Probate solicitors will get to know you so that we can make the process less stressful for you.
When someone hasn’t made a Will, they are said to have died Intestate. Their estate will be divided between members of their family according to rules originally made in 1925.
The person’s spouse or blood relatives may be able to inherit. But couples who weren’t married can’t automatically inherit from each other. The person’s friends or ‘in-laws’ aren’t entitled to inherit anything either.
One of the people who can inherit will need to apply to the Court for permission to deal with the person’s assets. We will help you to work out who is entitled to inherit the estate and take the stress out of making the Court application.
Sometimes there can be problems when the amount of money a spouse can inherit is limited by the law. You might have to share the estate with children or other members of the family. If you are worried that you haven’t been provided for properly our Probate experts can help you make a claim against the estate.
