For the majority of us dealing with the loss of a loved one is an unfamiliar process.

Hunt Solicitors offer a full service to deal with legal issues arising on death as they understand that for most people the process can be unclear and knowing where to start is often the most difficult part.

Hunt Solicitors specialise in all areas of Estate administration and the many practicalities that come with this process. They can offer advice and practical guidance on how to best administer an Estate regardless of its value and make up.

Most people have probably heard of the term ‘Probate’ however just what this means is often un-clear. In practical terms a Grant of Probate is the Court declaring that the Will of the deceased is in fact the last Will. The document then issued by the court can be used to close any bank accounts held by the deceased and can also then be used to sell any property which they owned.

Not all Estates require a Grant of Probate in order to close accounts and finalise matters. Often the individual is able to handle many aspects of the Estate administration personally. However, if you are unsure if Probate is required Hunt Solicitors offer free initial consultations and they can discuss the make up of any Estate with you to determine if Probate is required.

The administration of Estates involves various aspects which may not be immediately clear to the individual and Estates can quickly become complex if not administered in the correct manner.

Hunt Solicitors have a dedicated Probate department who work to ensure the efficient and time effective completion of all Estates to ensure that you are not facing the additional burden of administrative delays.
