Grant Only Service

If you have to deal with the affairs of someone who has died, and would like to administer the estate yourself, we can help. We can assist you with applying for probate and completing the necessary tax forms – our fees will be paid from the estate.

Before deciding to take on administering the estate yourself, you should be satisfied that the Will and the estate are relatively simple. If you make a mistake when administering the estate, you may have to compensate the people who lose out from your own pocket. You should also be confident that you can cope with the additional demands on your time and energy which administering an estate will make.

Our step-by-step guide shows you how our Grant Only Service works.

Step 1: Applying for the Grant Only Service

We’ll take brief details from you about the person who died; their property, money and possessions. We then ask our panel of experienced probate solicitors to confirm the estate is suitable for the Grant Only service.    
Once we get a ‘yes’ from our panel of probate solicitors, we take your payment and pass your details on to the chosen solicitors. The cost of the Grant Only service is repayable to you from the estate.

Step 2: Your Solicitor will contact you

Your solicitor will contact you to take further details about the person who has died, and will ask you to forward the death certificate, Will if there is one, and any documents or papers they need regarding the property, money and possessions of the person who died.

Step 3: Inheritance tax and probate application forms.

Your solicitor will calculate the net value of the estate; complete the IHT 205 inheritance tax form and the application form for the Probate Registry to issue the grant.

Step 4: The Grant is sent to you in the post

Once the Grant is received, your solicitor will send it to you in the post for you to complete administration of the estate, make the gifts, and prepare estate accounts.

Please note:

The cost of the Grant Only probate service covers only the application for the grant, and does not include any advice or assistance from Just Probate, or our panel solicitors, about any other aspect of administering an estate.
