Our Probate Services

sunlight through the trees

In the difficult times we’re currently living through there may be a temptation to put off dealing with things that make us feel uneasy, particularly where there are no obvious pressing time limits. Losing a loved one is bad enough at a normal time, but the additional challenges for bereaved families during the coronavirus crisis have been unthinkable.

It is understandable that you might want to delay obtaining the grant of probate and dealing with the estate administration until things have returned more to normal. We quite understand that. However inheritance tax is still due six months after the end of the month of death and the inheritance tax return is due one year the end of the month of death. You will also need a grant to transfer money and assets to the beneficiaries in most cases.

We can reassure you that we remain open to new probate cases and that we can carry out meetings remotely, using zoom. Any records that need to be delivered in person will be dealt with in a manner that observes social distancing rules.

At such a difficult time after losing a loved one, I was daunted by the prospect of how to deal with the administration of Seymour’s estate and everything that that entails.

Jan kindly took control and dealt with every detail with the minimum of fuss, making the whole process simple and completely stress-free.

And all at the fraction of the cost that I was quoted by various solicitors!

A huge thank you to Jan and the team!

Irene Murphy

Bereavement can be one of the most distressing times of our life and I was so pleased that Friend & Grant were able to take away some of the stress that came with that when my Mother died.  From my first meeting with Jan Friend I began to feel at ease.  Friend & Grant were able to carry out all the necessary legal work right from the very beginning, arranging for the granting of probate through to the end distribution of the Estate to beneficiaries.  Throughout the process Jan Friend offered me good sound advice, identified areas I would certainly not have considered to need addressing and helped bring closure to my bereavement.  I would certainly use Friend and Grant again and would recommend them to others in the same situation.
