PROBATE & ESTATE ADMINISTRATION, MADE SIMPLE.

After the death of a loved one, one of the things an executor needs to do is arrange for a grant of probate.  It can be complex, but our expert lawyers can guide you though it. 

WHAT IS PROBATE & ESTATE ADMINISTRATION?

Estate administration is the process of managing and distributing a person’s assets, and paying any relevant debts after they have died.  Depending on whether the deceased person had a valid Will, either a grant of probate or letters of administration are generally needed to complete the estate administration process.

OUR BUSINESS MODEL LETS US BE MUCH MORE AFFORDABLE.

At Bare, we don’t have offices, we don’t have receptionists and we use smart technology to replace manual processes.  This means we can deliver the highest quality legal service – at the lowest possible price.
