    Probate Matters

    Probate Matters

    A grant of representation is a document issued by the court which gives the executor or personal representatives the legal authority to deal with the deceased assets. This includes closing Bank accounts, dealing with investments and selling or distributing property and valuables that the deceased owned according to what is stated in the Will.

    The administration of an estate involves:

    • Applying for a Grant of Representation
    • Paying any inheritance due
    • Collecting the estates assets
    • Selling any liabilities of the estate
    • Distributing the net estate to the beneficiaries named in the Will
    • Distributing the net estate to those entitled under the intestacy rules if there is no Will

    Lasting Power of Attorney

    It is important to ensure that you have a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in place.

    An LPA is a legal document that you can put in place now so that if you lost mental capacity in the future, the person or people that you have nominated would be able to act on your behalf regarding your property and finances and / or make decisions regarding your health and welfare.

    Do you have specific wishes regarding your health in the event that you were too ill to communicate your wishes with a medical professional? Would you like your loved ones to make decisions on your behalf?

    To discuss putting in place a Power of Attorney, get in touch with Pabla’s on 0161 446 1122 or send through an email to enquiries@pablasolicitors.co.uk

    Court of Protection

    In the event of a person losing mental capacity without appointing a Lasting Power of Attorney, a court order is required in order to deal with the assets of the person who is no longer capable of doing so themselves.

    Matters can often be very difficult for the family when a loved one loses mental capacity.

    Please contact our specialist for further information regarding this service.
