Our Middlesbrough probate solicitors understand that if you require the use of their services, you will be going through a difficult time. That's why we consider a sympathetic and understanding approach to be just as important as a professional one, when it comes to this area of law.
It is possible, with sufficient time and knowledge to complete probate yourself, but the vast majority of people consider it worthwhile enlisting the help of a lawyer. It is our goal to shoulder as much of the legal burden as possible, so you can focus on getting your life back together.
Our probate specialists will inform any banks, building societies and other organisations which hold any assets. We can then value the Estate, settle any debts, and calculate the Inheritance Tax bill, before allocating the assets as set out in the Will.
We can also assist with Power of Attorney, and advise what to do in cases where no Will has been left (intestacy).
If you need the assistance of our Middlesbrough probate solicitors, call our team on the number at the bottom of the screen and our team will talk you through the process. Or if you prefer, complete the form to the right and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Writing a Will may seem like an unimportant task, but should anything happen to you, and you die without leaving one, it can mean a lot of unnecessary stress and expense for the loved ones you leave behind.

You can state who you wish to look after any children or dependents in the event of your death
