Probate Solicitor - Cardiff

Dealing with the loss of a family member or friend is difficult and the added pressure of probate can make it even more stressful. However, The Probate Network can introduce you to probate solicitors in Cardiff who are willing to offer some free probate advice. You don’t have to go through probate alone. The Probate Network aims to make the probate process less overwhelming by introducing you to a knowledgeable and compassionate solicitor who will begin the probate process with some free probate advice.

What’s on offer?

The Probate Network will introduce you to a probate solicitor in Cardiff who will provide you with dependable probate advice and support. You can speak to them about any probate-related matter including:

What can you expect from the call?

When you book with The Probate Network you’ll be connected with a pleasant and empathetic probate solicitor who is a member of the Law Society and Regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. This call will not be a sales pitch. The call is to provide you with some genuine free probate advice to help you map out a clear plan for your next steps. Of course, if you feel your next steps will involve the support of a probate solicitor you are welcome to ask for a probate quote or, if you prefer, you can request the probate quote online after your consultation.

Prior to the call you may want to take a look at our probate checklist. It’s a list of all the likely documents you will need to complete the probate process. Reviewing the probate checklist prior to the call will ensure that you’re well prepared to make the most of your free probate advice. We strive to provide you with everything possible to give you what you need to make informed decisions.

What happens after the call?

What happens after the call is entirely up to you. You will have a better understanding of your legal position, knowledge you may use to complete the probate process yourself. If support from a probate solicitor is needed, you will have a clear understanding of the probate costs involved and the likely timescales. It may be that you complete some of the probate tasks and ask the probate solicitor for assistance with some elements. Support on Inheritance Tax and exemptions is a common area where additional support is requested because when calculations are wrong, executors or administrators can be held personally liable.

If your consultation is being used to discuss contentious probate then you will have a better idea of whether you have both the right to contest and if you do have the right, the likelihood of being successful. You can also ask for an idea of the legal costs involved – litigation is rarely cheap so you need to balance the legal costs, the value of the estate and the potential of success.

Why the Network offers this service?

Not all solicitors are willing to offer any advice for free. With some firms the first time you speak to a probate solicitor is when an official appointment is booked and the fee for the consultation has been agreed. Prior to that all conversations are with the support staff. The Probate Network will introduce you to a probate solicitor in Cardiff who is willing to offer some free probate advice – you speak to them directly.

This gives you:

  • some initial free advice and access to a qualified and regulated professional who can answer your probate questions
  • The chance to decide if the solicitor is someone you can work with should further professional (paid for) support be required.

Our reviews tell you that we deliver exactly what we promise; no pressure, just your probate questions answered.

The person I spoke with seemed to be very knowledgeable and made some good points. But, given the relatively simple probate application (uncontested and all documents available) the charge of 1.75% on £750k is way over the top. Substantially more than my local high street solicitor. So thanks but no thanks.

I used the 20 minute free service. The call I received was punctual and my three questions were answered fully and clearly. There was no pressure to progress to 'paid for' services. On that basis, if I do need further help with probate, I think I'd be happy to try them out.
Really really helpful at such a difficult and vulnerable time.He went through everything clearly and supportively

My appointment was scheduled and the subsequent call was on time. I had an excellent discussion with Keisha. She provided a detailed answer to my query and gave me a clear way forward.

I can't thank Lesley at Awakened Law enough for the invaluable advice she provides with regards the my late fathers estate. She was kind, sympathetic and answered all my questions.There was no 'hard sell' to employ her services, which, I have to confess, had been a concern.Thanks again to Lesley and The Probate Network.

I hate to leave negative reviews, especially as it seems everybody else has had a good experience, but I booked an online consultation and sat waiting for 20 minutes and nobody contacted me. I also submitted an online enquiry asking a question instead and never received a reply. The only contact I received was an email asking for feedback, so here it is.

I needed some advice on completing probate inheritance tax forms. I thought this may be a sales pitch but it wasn't. The guy I spoke with gave me some really useful advice which helped me to complete the all the forms which HMRC seem to be happy with. Great service, highly recommended.

Whilst I did get some useful advice this arena is more focused on selling the services of the solicitor who you meet with, and I felt the advice was not definitive because of that. My call was a WhatsApp video call which I wasn’t expecting. If you’re ready and presentable it’s probably better!

The agent was very patient in dealing with the multiplicity of detail that I supplied, and with the numerous questions that I asked. I sense that this patience caused the consultation to go beyond the allotted time, and that was especially appreciated.

Holly was fantastic. She contacted me prior to the appointment to ensure that the time was still convenient. During the consultation she was objective and informative. Excellent information, advice and guidance. The offer to answer further questions was also offered. An amazing service that really helped me when I needed it massively. Thank you and would recommend this to anyone needing support with regards to being left sorting out an estate, with or without a will. Thank you Holly

Often ‘free consultation’ means vague information and a hard sell so I was sceptical about this service. How wrong I was! They were absolutely brilliant! They listened, they gave me good advice discussing options and made sure I was clear about the legal position before finishing the call. There was no ‘sell’ and no pressure. Based on this experience they come acidosis open, transparent and honest and so, if things don’t work out, I’d be inclined to go back to The Probate Network. Superb!

Booked a 20 minute free consultation as desperate for advice - had no expectation of it actually happening or being useful but it turned out to be exactly what was promised - free, professional advice (and very useful) at the time slot I chose. Am v grateful - thanks.
