How Long Does Probate Take?

Are you an Executor or family member that has been told you need probate? Unsure where to start and how long it will take?

The probate process has for key stages:

  1. Assessing the assets
  2. Application to the probate court
  3. Collecting in the various assets
  4. Paying liabilities and distributing the estate

The timescales vary depending on the type of case and the nature of the deceased person’s assets. For example, if the deceased left a single bank account, or an insurance policy then probate can be straightforward, and can be obtained in a matter of 3-6 weeks.

By contrast if the deceased left a large estate with a property then this will take longer as selling a property can take time. In most probate cases we find that we are able to finalise estates within several months.

What is important to understand is that if probate is handled correctly it need not take a long time.

Hiring help from a specialist firm like ourselves does make a difference in terms of timescales. We know how the banks work, what forms they need, and who to contact, but must importantly, we have dedicated teams that specialise in the completion of all the compulsory inheritance tax returns that must be completed in every case.

We believe the quality of our probate service is the best provided by any UK law firm. What next? To let us help you speak with a probate specialist now on 0330 311 9700 (open 9.00 – 17.30 Monday – Friday) or complete the online enquiry form.
