About the probate process
When a person passes away, his or her money, possessions, and estates must be distributed in an organised way. This includes identifying all of the person’s assets and liabilities to establish the value of the estate. A legal document called a Grant of Representation is issued by the probate service, which is required by the executors as evidence of the person’s entitlement to deal.
The role of an executor is to follow the wishes of the Will. The team at Paradigm Wills & Legal Services can assist by writing to all creditors and debtors to get a valuation of assets and liabilities, putting in a statutory notice of death, completing the appropriate tax forms, and arranging for the estate to pay any tax that may be due. At this point, we can then submit all paperwork to the probate office and the inheritance tax office to receive the grant of probate. Once the grant is approved, this will enable us to collect all monies, sell properties and shares (if applicable), pay off any debts, and create a set of estate administration accounts before distribution of inheritance can take place.
