Looking for your local:

1) The Probate Department Ltd is a firm of solicitors providing economical probate help throughout England and Wales. We are NOT a government department.
2) Free Probate Guide? Just use our enquiry form below and we’ll email it to you. We do not post them out I am afraid – that would cost us a fortune every day (and we would have to put our modest fees up to the level most firms charge!) Probate Registries will post out their Guide and Forms, paid for out of your taxes!
3) Probate Registry Forms are HERE.
4) Simple Probate Question? Click the link and ask!
5) If you would like economical help with probate, whether just for an hour or so, or you want us to do everything, we are happy to offer a brief informal plain English free consultation – with our barrister if necessary. As the leading expert within our team, her charge out rate was well over £400 an hour in her previous firm. As part of our team, her expertise is available at a fraction of that, where it is needed. Please note that advice given in a free 5 minute consultation cannot take into account the full situation and should be taken only as general information to point you in the right direction.
We won’t charge you a bean until you have specifically agreed that you want us to work for you and agreed our fees. If you wish, you can email your enquiry via the form on the next page. 01323 406299.
As far as costs are concerned, you will find that our flexible low overhead approach will shrink the final bill substantially, and make life less stressful for you. Not only that, if you do ring with a query, nine times out of ten, you’ll speak to one of our legal team direct, not a secretary. And we don’t insist on doing everything, unless you want us to.
However, we expect the average client to save at least half of the normal cost of probate – more if they want to help (and we don’t mind that at all).
