Wills & Probate

We at V. E. White & Co. believe that a properly drafted will, to ensure your estate is dealt with in a tax-efficient manner, is essential in our day and age. Our Wills & Probate team have the specialist knowledge and skills required in the areas of wills, tax planning and probate to help our client’s through a difficult time for their family and loved ones.

We at V. E. White & Co. are will specialists, with many wills being prepared over a standard working week. Our will process allows our clients to explain their wishes in full and have their will tailored to their individual needs accordingly, with the offer of holding their original will at the firm, for no extra charge.

When someone close to you passes away, you will require someone to deal with their ‘estate’. An individual’s estate is defined as all of their money, property and any other possessions they have at the date of their death. Before distributing this estate as per the individual’s will, the estate must go through Probate. This process will pool all of the assets together, settle any outstanding debts and finally distribute the estate to the respective beneficiaries.

All of the individual’s assets remain frozen whilst the Probate process is continuing. Upon completion of this process, a Grant of Representation will be presented to the Executor’s, thus giving them the power to distribute the individual’s estate as per the will.

If there is no will, it is the responsibility of the appropriate member of the family to act on behalf of the estate and obtain Probate.

Whether you are the Executor or the next of kin, We at V. E. White & Co. can provide practical guidance to deal with the Probate process until its completion. Our team are expertly trained in being able to complete the Probate in an efficient manner, whilst also aiding with any Inheritance Tax issues which may arise.

Our team can complete the Probate process from beginning to end so that you do not have the extra stress of this situation, which includes paying all outstanding funeral expenses and debts. Our team will process all the correct forms and will even distribute the estate, as per the will, on the completion of the Probate process.

We are able to arrange the transfer or sale of any shares or residential property which belonged to the estate. We at V. E. White & Co. will ensure that the Probate process is completed professionally and with the highest level of care, allowing you the time you need to grieve for lost family members.
