Chennells Probate Services

We look after the administration of estates where a Will has been left and also where there is no Will (an intestacy).

We act for personal representatives in dealing with the administration of the Estate from start to finish or we are happy to get involved part way through the administration if, for example, the personal representatives are having difficulty in dealing with matters themselves.

Our probate work includes obtaining full details of an Estate and a valuation of assets, preparing inheritance tax returns, obtaining a Grant of Probate (where there is a Will) or Letters of Administration (where there is an intestacy), realising assets and paying debts, settling tax, preparing Estate accounts and distributing the estate.

Our probate solicitor can assist with Deeds of Variation where there is a Will or where there is not.
