Probate Help and Assistance

Obtaining Probate need not be a lengthy and costly process which many people think only solicitors can handle. Most cases requiring Probate can be handled by the appointed executors of the Will with a little help and guidence.  Affairs in Order offer Probate Assistance at a fixed cost, to new or existing clients, reducing the cost considerably of obtaining Probate, removing the worry and anxiety of a % charge to the deceased estate. Most home owners own their property jointly and this means that the property passes to the survivor on first death outside of the Will, therefore it does not attract a probate charge. When Probate is calculated on a % basis this usually includes 50% of the deceased share in their property resulting in an additional cost of several thousand pounds, which is an unnecessary charge.
