If you own property, have children, or run your own business, it is recommended for you to make a Will. Having a Will not only gives you peace of mind, but it can also protect your family and those you want to benefit from your hard work.

Making a Will is not as easy as it seems; there are a number of legal procedures that need to happen to make a Will valid. Also, without legal assistance, mistakes can be made and there might be a lack of clarity, which may leave your will open to challenge.

Our Contesting a Will solicitors can also help you if you want to challenge a Will. If you think you have been unfairly left out of a Will or not been given enough, you may be able to contest a Will. Our expert Contesting a Will solicitors can advise you on whether they think your case may be successful or not.

Probate Solicitors in Chorley

At Forbes Solicitors in Chorley, we can help you deal with the administration of a loved one's estate, after they have died. To be able to deal with an estate, the personal representatives will need to apply for a Grant of Probate; or, if there is no Will, a Grant of Letters of Administration. Our experienced and compassionate Probate solicitors can deal with the whole administration of an estate if you wish; this can include:

  • Contacting third parties, such as banks and utility companies

  • Having assets valued

  • Obtaining the Grant of Probate or Grant of Letters of Administration

  • Transferring assets and money to the beneficiaries

  • Selling the deceased's property

  • Advising on Trust arrangements laid out in a Will

This is simply a snapshot of many of the aspects of Probate our solicitors can deal with. Each estate will have its own unique circumstances and our highly qualified Probate lawyers will attempt to make this process as painless as possible for the deceased's loved ones.

Inheritance Tax

If your estate crosses the Inheritance Tax threshold, then speak to our Tax solicitors. We can give you legal advice on how to lower your tax burden. For more information on what we can do to help, go to our Inheritance Tax page.
