…and you need to sort out their affairs and pass on their money and possessions (“The Estate”).
Whether there is a Will or not, you need to know how to do this. For most Estates, the next of kin will need a Grant of Probate (or letters of administration if no Will) to give them the power to deal with the Estate. That means an application to the Probate Registry.
The next of kin (or executors named in a Will) have to complete and submit lengthy application forms to the Probate Registry. They also have to complete and submit complicated forms to the revenue (HMRC) calculating the value of the Estate and how much inheritance tax may be due.

Take all the worry and hassle away by using specialist solicitors to do all of this for you for a fixed fee.
