Estates, Wills and Probate Solicitors Swansea

When we pass away we obviously leave behind our loved ones and friends. They will naturally grieve for us. It is vitally important that you take the time to contact a probate solicitor in Swansea to make the necessary preparations for those you love and draw up a legally binding Will. One that clearly states; what you wish to happen to your assets, who you want your beneficiaries to be.

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.

What is Probate?

When a loved one or a close family member dies, somebody then has to deal with that person’s estate. An estate is considered to be made up of money, property, possessions and investments that were in place at the time of death. This process of dealing with a persona estate is known as probate.

Our dedicated team of probate solicitors in Swansea can provide you with the practical guidance needed for the whole process of dealing with estate administration. We can help determine the scope of the estate for probate and inheritance tax planning purposes.
