What Is Probate And Why Is It Needed?

Probate is something that you have probably heard of, but may not have had to deal with, so it could be something of a mystery. Yet most people will have to face probate at some point in their lives, and the more that is known about it, the better and easier it will be.

Probate is basically the legal process of administering the deceased’s estate. This means that any claims on the estate need to be resolved, and whatever is left – money, property, possessions and so on – is distributed to the people who are mentioned in the will or, if there is no will, then the people who are legally entitled to the estate through the rules of intestacy.

Probate has to be taken care of after someone dies unless their estate is worth under £5,000, and although it may seem like a simple task, there is a lot to think about. If the estate is not a complicated one, then probate will take a shorter amount of time, but it will still be many weeks, perhaps even months. And if the estate is complicated then it can even take years to untie all the knots and ensure that everything is as it should be. It does depend on the estate itself, the will or lack of one, and the time given to ensuring that probate is done. If it is down to a solicitor to do it then they will have many other cases to look at, for example, and your case may not get the time it needs to be completed quickly. If you try to do it yourself, it can also take a long time as you may not have the know-how to make things happen quickly.

The best advice is to use a specific probate company to assist you. They will be able to give the time and effort that will be needed.
