New online service aims to help speed up the estate administration process
When someone dies, the sad duty of dealing with probate and the administration of an estate often falls to the next of kin or a close relative.
If you are facing such a situation we offer our condolences on the loss of your loved one.
At such a stressful and emotional time, sorting out probate may seem too heavy a burden to deal with alone.
And during the Coronavirus crisis, with many people still isolating or shielding, it can be difficult to know how to get the process of probate and administration started.
Mander Hadley’s new online Probate Portal aims to make the process easier.
David Webb, Mander Hadley’s Director, explains: “The portal is not meant to be a substitute for the individual expert advice of our sympathetic and experienced estate administration team; rather it is a way of helping to get the ball rolling, particularly at a time when people are understandably reluctant to arrange face to face meetings.
“The online portal allow clients to provide us with the preliminary information required to begin the process of providing advice and support.
“All information is held securely and a member of our team can then assist with the probate and estate administration process remotely via phone, email or video call.
“Our team of solicitors are able to handle as much or as little of the administration process as is required and our involvement can reduce the distress and delay in dealing with probate.”
David added: “We very much hope the new probate portal will help to ease the stress of dealing with probate matters.”
