When a person dies someone will need to deal with their estate and affairs, this person is known as the personal representative and the process of dealing is known as Estate Administration.

This can be a complex and time-consuming job and as such, many executors choose to instruct a firm of Probate Solicitors to assist them with the administration of the estate to ensure that their obligations are met.

At Frodshams Solicitors, we can provide appropriate representation and advice at this most difficult time.

Probate Guide

Simply click on a heading below to find out more.

When there is a Will

If a person died having made a valid Will then the Will provisions will determine how the estate is to be divided and distributed. The Will should appoint persons to act in the estate administration and these people are known as the executors.

If you are named as an executor of a will then you are the person responsible to ensure the will terms are carried out.

Your responsibility is also to the beneficiaries of the estate.

When there isn’t a Will

When a person dies without having made a Will in life then he or she is said to have died Intestate and the Intestacy Rules (set out in the Administration of Estates Act 1925) will therefore apply and determine how the estate is divided and distributed.

The persons responsible for the administration of the deceased estate are known as the Administrators.

Probate Disputes

In some cases, disputes may arise with the will and all the administration process. The estate cannot be dealt with until all claims to it have been received.

Individuals have six months from the date when probate was granted to make claims against the estate.

Client Feedback

“We had a great experience with Frodsham’s. They dealt with our purchase incredibly quickly and navigated the pressures our buyer was putting on us throughout the process. Sue King was very responsive, calm and honest and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and Frodsham’s. I also want to mention Claire on reception-often when I phoned it was in extremely stressful situations and Claire was always so lovely and helpful, giving us information or passing us through quickly. We highly recommend and will be using them again in the future.”

“Frodsham’s are so supportive and helpful. They supported me through a very difficult time, and I cannot thank them enough for everything they did for me. From the receptionist to Kirsty, our solicitor, I could not fault them as a team. The team are all very down to earth and I felt confident that they would explain everything to me in a way I could understand. Well done and thank you.”

“We were extremely pleased with Frodsham’s. Rachael and Sue are a real credit to this firm, their customer service was fantastic and kept us up to date throughout the whole process. Even when we were facing unforeseen issues Rachael and Sue were there to fight our corner and ensure our move happened. We simply cannot fault them, and 5 stars is not enough!”

“Kirsty Strong provided us with a great service and went out of her way to assist us whenever others couldn’t, we will be forever grateful.”

“I recently used Paula for some family advice and I also made a Will through Frodsham’s. Paula was empathetic and clear at a difficult time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Frodsham’s to anyone seeking legal advice. Thank you for looking after me.”

“I would like to start by saying I cannot recommend this company enough. I recently had to get an urgent Power of Attorney for my Father as he was taken into hospital with Covid-19. This was an extremely stressful and worrying time for my family and I, which without a doubt would have been more difficult without the help of Frodshams. Kirsty dealt with everything from start to finish with complete professionalism and empathy. She understood the urgency of the situation and went above and beyond her duty of care as a solicitor to ensure everything was in place. My family and I are extremely grateful and will certainly be using Frodshams again in the future.”
