Probate Solicitors in Manchester

Losing a loved one is undoubtedly a challenging time in itself. However, if you have been appointed as the executor of the Will, you will be responsible for a long list of complex legal tasks that must be attended to in a timely matter. Taking this on can cause a great deal of stress, especially during bereavement. At Fieldings Porter, our probate solicitors in Manchester are dedicated to providing guidance, support and advice to executors in need of a helping hand through estate administration. When you instruct a member of our friendly team, our priority will be to relieve you of some of the emotional stress involved with probate, tackling each task efficiently and effectively on your behalf. We know that the last thing you need during this time is for the process to drag on or disputes to cause delay, so we will work proactively to distribute the financial assets and tie up any loose ends as quickly but meticulously as possible. Where family matters become complicated or conflicts arise, you can count on the team at Fieldings Porter to protect your interests as well as those of each named beneficiary.

What is probate?

The term ‘probate’ comes from a Grant of Probate, the legal document which must be obtained by the executor in order to gain access to the affairs of the deceased. However, this is only the beginning. If you have been named the executor in a Will of someone who has since passed away, you will be responsible for ensuring every loose end is tied up and the estate is distributed in accordance with the requests of the Will. While it is possible to undertake this process yourself, tackling these issues alone can be complicated and time-consuming, especially when there are a large number of beneficiaries or the estate has a particularly high net worth. Seeking the assistance of an experienced solicitor is highly recommended in ensuring that each matter is handled with efficiency and accuracy.
