Probate Services

When a loved one dies this can be a very distressing time. Hopefully your loved one left a will, but even if not (known as dying intestate) the estate of a loved one needs to be administered and distributed. The granting of probate is the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under a will or the laws of intestacy.

At Friend & Grant we supply an efficient and swift grant of probate application service. We take care to listen and respond to the specific needs of the relatives. As part of our probate services we can also deal with the administration of estate assets, preparation of estate accounts, distribution of the estate and sort out any tax due for the period of administration.

  • We provide a sensitive and caring service.
  • We are friendly and approachable. We always respond to calls and requests for meetings without delay.

I have been so happy with the service from Friend and Grant with tax returns and advice, and recently Jan has completed my Probate application which was a great help at a stressful time.  I have no hesitation in recommending them, a very professional team.

Dr Mark Williams

Friend and Grant compiled and managed my application for probate, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Their calm efficiency and attention to detail through a complex process took much of the stress away at a difficult time for me. I was particularly impressed and grateful for the level of personal service, marked by regular contact and updates, and for going the extra mile to ensure a timely submission of the application.
