Forbes Solicitors are experts in these complex areas of law, but you will find the legal advice we offer is straightforward and easy to understand. Whether you are a family member or executor, dealing with a will after a person's death can be a complex affair, which is why our team is dedicated to ensuring the process is dealt with care and compassion.

What is a Will?

A Will (or testament) is a legal document which outlines your wishes in terms of distributing your property or assets. It lets you have control over who gets your possessions when you pass away and it is advised that you get legal assistance to ensure your Will is understood the way you want it to be. Additionally, your Will needs to have a formal witness and signature in order to ensure its validity.

What is Probate?

Probate is the name given to describe the legal procedure to implement a person's Will or administer their estate. If you leave a Will, your executors may apply for a Grant of Probate. If you do not leave a Will, the person entitled to deal with your estate may need to apply for a Grant of Letters of Administration. The Grant will then allow you to administer the deceased's estate.
