Wills & Probate

Experts in Will Writing & Obtaining a Grant of Probate.

Why Make a Will?

At Simon Noble Solicitors our Principle Solicitor is an expert in Will writing. No matter what you may think about your personal wealth, it is of the utmost importance that you make a will because if you were to pass away without one certain rules set out by the government would dictate how your money, property or possessions would we allocated which could have been against your wishes.

You should keep in mind that unmarried partners or those that have not registered a civil partnership won’t be able to inherit from each other unless you have a will in place. The obvious problem in this is that the passing of one partner could create serious financial problems for the partner left behind.

If you have children you must a make a will so they will be taken care of in case of a tragic loss of life or passing away. Our Will writer Mr. Simon Noble can also advise you on tax which could reduce the amount of inheritance tax payable.

Whatever your circumstances are, it’s really important that you have a Will drafted which will ensure that your money and possessions are left to those you wanted to leave it to. It is also really important to make a Will if your circumstances have changed; such as separating from you partner or remarrying. You should keep in mind that if you had a Will in place and you re-married your old Will would be invalid and your estate would automatically go to your new partner. If you had any children they would not be entitled to anything from your estate.

When drafting your Will you should appoint an Executor or Executors who will be responsible for carrying out your wishes. They will be responsible for dealing with all the paper work, arranging and paying for your funeral, taxes and other administration costs out of the money left from your estate and of course pay out or transfer the property, gifts or money to the beneficiaries of your choice. You can choose to appoint any relatives or friends or Solicitors or Accountants. It is advisable to appoint more than one executor.

Once your will has been made you must keep it in a safe place.

What is Probate?

When a person dies somebody has to deal with their estate (money property and possessions left) by collecting in all the money, paying any debts and distributing what is left to those people entitled to it. Probate is the court’s authority; given to a person or persons to administer a deceased person’s estate and the document issued by the Probate Service is called a Grant of Representation. This document is usually required by the asset holders as proof to show the correct person or persons have the Probate Service’s authority to administer a deceased person’s estate.

After a person has died everything that was owned is known as their estate. It can be made up of Money (Cash or money in the bank), life insurance policy, shares, property (like their home) and personal possessions such as a car or jewellery. If the deceased had debts, these must be paid out of the estate.

If a Will was made, the estate will be passed to relatives or friends according to the instructions of the will, or if no Will was made, according to the rules of intestacy.

The deceased would have appointed an executor to deal with his estate and they in turn would have to apply for a special legal authority before they can deal with the estate. This is called Probate.

At Simon Noble Solicitors we understand the complexities of Dealing with such matters. It can be a massive stress upon an executor to deal with the whole ordeal of distributing the estate. We can take care of the whole process for you and you can be rest assured that the deceased’s instructions would carried out and the family members and loved ones would be taken care of as they wished. Our Principle Solicitor has the expertise to take care of all matters including estate administration or deed variation if required.
