Probate Solicitors Stoke-on-Trent

Losing a loved one is a difficult experience, made even more challenging by the complex and stressful world of probate. The Probate Network is here to support you through this time by connecting you with compassionate and knowledgeable probate solicitors in Stoke-on-Trent who can provide you with free advice. Our goal is to simplify the probate process and provide you with a clear way forward by introducing you to a solicitor who understands your unique situation.

How can The Probate Network Help?

When you reach out to us, we will connect you with a trustworthy and empathetic probate solicitor who is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and a member of the Law Society. Our aim is not to sell you anything but to offer you genuine advice that can help you plan your next steps. During the call, you can discuss various probate-related matters, including applying for a Grant of Probate, Letters of Administration, intestacy rules, valuing probate property, international probate, dealing with contentious probate, inheritance tax, estate administration and estate distribution. If you need further assistance, you can ask for a probate quote during the call or request one using our probate quote form.

How to prepare for your call

Before your call, we suggest that you review our probate checklist, which lists all the required documents for completing the probate process. This will help you prepare for the call and make the most of the free advice we provide.

What happens after the call?

After the call, you will have a better understanding of your legal position, allowing you to determine whether you require the assistance of a probate solicitor. If you do, you will have a clear idea of the costs and timeframes involved. Our Stoke-on-Trent-based solicitors can provide further support with specific elements of the probate process, such as calculating inheritance tax and exemptions, which can be a complex area to navigate. They can also help with applying for the Grant of Probate and assist with estate administration and distribution, especially in cases where there are numerous beneficiaries or complicated financial arrangements.

If you’re dealing with contentious probate, our solicitors can give you an idea of whether you have grounds to contest and estimate the legal costs involved.

What sets The Probate Network apart is that we offer free advice, which not all solicitors provide. By connecting you with a probate solicitor in Stoke-on-Trent who is willing to provide free advice, you can receive the information you need and determine if the solicitor is someone you can work with if you require further advice in the future.

The Probate Services Business Directory

Our probate services business directory is another valuable resource that allows you to find various probate service providers in Stoke-on-Trent and beyond. During the probate process, you may require the assistance of professionals such as probate finance and probate loans, probate insurance, RICS property valuers, genealogists, asset and will searches, burial and cremation services, valuers for jewellery and vehicles, and probate-specific house clearance services. Our searchable directory lists these services and more.

At The Probate Network, we aim to deliver on our promises and provide pressure-free advice that empowers you to make informed decisions.

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.
