Probate Solicitors Liverpool

When a close friend or relative dies you may need to apply for a "Grant of Probate" to confirm you are legally appointed in the will (The Executor) or if there is no will (The Administrator) to handle the administration of the estate.


The responsibility of dealing with probate and estate administration can be a very stressful, at an already distressing time.


Our private client team have made hundreds of probate applications and have administered many estates both straight forward and complex.


Gathering details of the deceased persons assets, such as property, savings accounts and stocks and shares is necessary. Details of all debts, mortgages and other liabilities is also required. Sales of property and shares may have to be arranged as will deductions for the funeral and other expenses. Many people don't fully understand that as executor of an estate you are financially liable for any errors you make. Missing out a beneficiary, for example, would mean you would have to put right the mistake from your own pocket.
