Knowing what questions to ask your probate solicitor before engaging them can help you to decide whether they are right for you. These are just some of the questions that you might consider and there may be more, depending on your personal circumstances.
At Andrew & Andrew, we can talk you through the ways that we are able to assist you as your probate solicitors in Portsmouth.
What role will they play?
The role of your probate solicitor in Portsmouth largely depends on your wishes and the complexity of the estate. At Andrew & Andrew, we can look at your circumstances with you and let you know where we can help or where things might need clarifying legally. You can then choose how you would like us to proceed.
How much does the service cost?
Following on from the above answer, the costs involved vary with our level of involvement. Once we have established what you need, we can give you an estimate. Sometimes there is a provision of monies within the will to cover legal costs. If you are the executor of the estate, you may be responsible for ensuring that this happens.
What does X mean?
There are plenty of legal terms within the probate process. If you hear something and you are not quite sure what it refers to, please ask a member of the team at Andrew & Andrew. No one expects you to be a legal expert and it is important that you understand exactly what you are involved in. We are happy to demystify terms and procedures for you. Open communication of this kind is vital with your probate solicitor.
What is their experience level?
Dealing with probate means addressing some sensitive issues during a difficult time for the family. In order to skilfully navigate this situation, your probate solicitor needs to have plenty of experience.
At Andrew & Andrew, we have been assisting people with the disbursement of estates for more than 60 years. We have a reputation for professionalism and efficiency. We hope that you will have a similar experience of our services when we are working as your probate solicitors in Portsmouth.
