Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Good afternoonMy husband passed away earlier this year and my being named in his witnessed Will as Executor and recipient of his estate, am trying to understand whether or not I need to apply for probrate as well as the appropriateness of contacting the Inheritance tax office. I will be grateful for your time to discuss this matter.kind regardsHelen ХХХХХХХХTel: ХХХХХХХХemail: ХХХХХХХХ@gmail.com
Good evening thank you for your question, I am sorry to hear that you have lost your husband. Basically probate depends upon the assets in your husband's sole name, any joint assets pass without the Will and without probate. Even if you have a property held as tenants in common you would not need probate or if his bank accounts do not hold large balances.
Do you have an idea of what is involved?
I would be happy to help you further, I do not see the website side of things, I only see the questions posted to the question board? this is email and not live chat.
Hello would you like further assistance?
