Probate Solicitor Guildford

The process of probate can be stressful and daunting if someone close to you has passed away but you don’t have to handle the probate on your own. The Probate Network can introduce you to Guildford based probate solicitors who are happy to offer some initial free probate advice. Our network includes probate solicitors and contentious probate solicitors who are based in Guildford and are regulated by the Law Society of England and Wales.

Solicitors affiliated with The Probate Network provide advice and support on the full spectrum of probate matters ranging from applying for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration to full estate administration and inheritance tax as well as the rules of intestacy and international probate. Our contentious probate lawyers are always happy to assess if you have a claim regarding a disputed Will.

What can you expect from the call?

Via The Probate Network, you can find a skilled probate lawyer in Guildford. With our pre-call checklist, you’ll ensure you’re ready to get the most out of the call. We want the process to be as seamless and efficient as possible, giving you complete confidence in your position.

You will receive professional and impartial advice, allowing you to make an informed decision about your next steps.

What happens after the call?

After your consultation with a Guildford based probate solicitor, you’ll have a clearer picture of your legal position and the probate process will become easier to navigate. If you think professional probate support maybe required in the future, ask the solicitor for a probate quote so you understand how much professional probate advice will cost.

If there is a dispute regarding a Will, a call will help to provide insight into the legal aspects involved, your chances of making a successful claim for contentious probate and the likely costs for professional help.

Why does the Network offer this service?

The Probate Network provides free legal advice for probate matters because sometimes it’s what people need during a very difficult and emotional time. An initial free consultation is not offered by all probate solicitors so the Network is an easy way to find those that do. The solicitors in the Network recognise that free advice is all many people will need because, after some initial guidance, they are able to complete the probate process without professional support. However, some people are overwhelmed by the process or have a particularly complex estate to manage and do require professional support. In this instance we hope they choose a solicitor who is kind enough to offer some initial free support.

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.
