Arranging the affairs of a loved one after they have died

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 understand that dealing with finances when someone has died is a daunting prospect, and hopefully you won’t have to face it too often. Our experienced Probate team deal with this every day and will be sympathetic and practical helping you to solve any problems you might face.

If the person made a Will, it tells you what to do with their belongings and money, who should look after their children, and the people who should deal with it all. If they haven’t made a will they are described as Intestate, our Intestacy page will give you more details about what this means.

Probate technically means a document issued by the Court confirming that the Will is valid. It lets the Executors named in the person’s will sort out their financial affairs. Our Probate specialist solicitors can take the stress out of applying for probate and paying any tax. We will give you peace of mind that you are dealing with the Will properly.

Our Probate specialists will help you to:

  • make sure that the will is valid
  • pay any debts and taxes, including Inheritance Tax
  • pass on the property and money to the people named in the will
  • deal with any claims if someone believes they should have been provided for


We will guide you through the process of dealing with the person’s estate to help you make sure you have followed the law and the will properly. For more information on our services and pricing, please visit the Prices and Services Information page of our website where you will find a guide on how we can assist in probate matters.
