Prepaid Probate Plans

Your loved ones can’t avoid Probate if you die with more than £5000s worth of assets — but you can protect them from the consequences with a Prepaid Probate Plan.

Probate is the legal process required by law to distribute your assets when you die with an estate worth more than £5000.

Probate can take up to 6-months if you have a will in place, but it can take up to 2-years and cost many thousands of pounds more in legal fees if you do not.

You can fix the cost of Probate at today’s prices with a prepaid plan and ensure your family has nothing to pay when you die.

And when you combine your plan with an up-to-date Will, your beneficiaries can dramatically reduce the time it takes to administer your estate.

Let’s Get Started?

Providing you with all the support you need 

Probate can often seem daunting, especially at such a sensitive time when your family will be grieving. If the executor is a family member, they may feel overwhelmed by the process; they may see it as complicated, or they may not have the time to deal with everything that is required.

This is where Brighton Wills & Family Trusts can help:

  • Our Prepaid Probate Plans ensure the costs are covered in advance, so your loved ones avoid the burden of covering the costs at such a difficult time.
  • We can provide caring, sympathetic support for the executor.
  • We can carry out many of the initial responsibilities on their behalf, and our company solicitors will manage the official procedures at a preferential rate.

Take advantage of a Prepaid Funeral Plan to

  • fix the cost of Probate at today’s prices,
