About Get Probate's Services

Get Probate Limited provide a professional probate service with very affordable fees – especially compared to many solicitors and banks who often have higher basic fees and also charge a percentage of the estate.

If you are an executor of a Will, Get Probate can help you with probate and take some of the stress off you at this difficult time.

We are authorised by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) to offer probate services for uncontentious Wills. In 2014, the ICAEW became an approved regulator and licensing authority for probate services – which means that you do not have to use a solicitor for probate.

If a Will is contentious it needs to be handled by a solicitor and we can recommend you a good one.

How we can help you

Many people would prefer to deal with their Accountant for probate because they are familiar with the deceased’s financial situation – and because their fees are normally considerably lower than the fees charged by solicitors and banks.

However, a lot of Accountants are not authorised by the ICAEW to conduct probate work themselves. So, as Get Probate Limited are authorised, we work alongside them to help their clients with probate. You remain the executor of the Will and you appoint us as your representative. By using the latest technology we are able to provide a high quality and affordable probate service.

There is no need for face-to-face meetings as everything can be done via phone, email and our client portal. For your free initial advice about probate, contact us on:
