Probate

We are an established firm of probate specialists offering fixed fee services throughout England and Wales.

We will guarantee a fair, fixed and transparent pricing for all our Estate administration services.

The Process

When someone leaves assets over £5,000, one of the types of grant is usually required before those assets can be obtained and distributed. Some assets, for instance bank accounts, can be closed where the cash within them is around £5,000 (sometimes more, depending on the bank), though administrators should note that where a person dies intestate, the administrator obtains their authority from the actual grant. A grant is required to deal with other assets, like shares in a company or a house.

Do I need probate?

There are circumstances where a grant is not needed. Where the estate is less than £5,000, for instance, and only includes cash funds held in deposit accounts, you would not normally need to obtain a grant in order to obtain the money. However, where the estate includes certain assets – like land or shares – you will always need to obtain a grant.

FAIR, FIXED AND TRANSPARENT

Hatfield Daniels LLP is proud to be in partnership with one of the UK’s leading providers of Estate administration services, they specialise in providing a comprehensive, efficient and cost effective solution to families at their time of need. Since 2002, they have helped thousands of families’ deal with the Estates of their loved ones and have accurately distributed nearly £1 billion of funds to beneficiaries.

Hatfield Daniels LLP always quote a fixed and all-inclusive fee at the outset. No matter how complex the Probate process may become (and providing all the information given to us is complete and correct) their fee will remain the same.

Hatfield Daniels made it easy for us to get our wills sorted out - a job we'd been putting off for years. The whole process only took a couple of weeks and Daniel made it easy by explaining our options and listening to what what we wanted to achieve before drafting the wills. I'd thoroughly recommend Hatfield Daniels to anyone else who knows they should have a will but have never quite got round to it...
