Less than half of the adult population of the United Kingdom is without a Will. This means that their loved ones are expected to spend time, money and energy on sorting out our finances after they have passed.

Many people believe that anything they own will automatically be passed over to their families; sadly that is not the case.

Our devoted team has the experience you need to create a Will that explicitly lays out your desires; both legally binding and compelling.

What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.

Wills and Probate FAQs

Does everyone need a Will?

A

Yes. A Will sets out your final wishes. Without a valid will, it is the government's duty to make such decisions.

What is a valid Will?

A

A Will is not binding until it has been signed; furthermore, there are also guidelines about the signing of the Will which must be followed in order to guarantee that it is legitimate.

Who are the Executors of the Will?

A

A Will specifies the names of the individuals who will comply with your wishes and handle the estate. Their role is to ensure that all receivers meet their contributions and cover any costs, such as unpaid water bills and funeral expenses, to the family. Such people are called executors because they execute the orders. Typically, the executors are relatives or friends, or they may be your solicitor.

What is Probate?

A

Probate is the term for the entire process of managing an individual's assets after they have passed. There are a number of steps that are common to every probate process including:
• Identify all the estate’s assets and debts.
• Apply to the Probate Registry for a Grant of Probate either online or by post. Alternatively, a solicitor or probate specialist can be appointed to do this for you.
• Complete an inheritance tax return. If there is any tax due, pay this out of the estate.
• On receipt of the Grant of Probate, repay any outstanding debts and distribute the estate to beneficiaries as instructed in the Will.

How Long Does Probate Take?

A

The scale and nature of the estate and the Will depend on it. The typical probate period for a valid Will and a simple estate is approximately six to nine months. Unfortunately, conflicts can arise. These may be between recipients, investors, and sometimes even executors. If necessary, the solicitor will take over the administration of the estate entirely.
