When do you need to know about Probate Solictors and what the probate solicitors fees UK are? In the UK, when a person dies, not all of his/her duties and obligations. In fact, the legal burden upon the dead person still persists – this is in so far as his/her estate is concerned. So what exactly is an estate? Basically, the estate pertains to all the properties and the assets that the dead person had accumulated during his/her lifetime. What happens to these properties and assets after death must be determined either by a will (testate) or by the prevailing executry law (intestate).
As you can imagine, there should be a person who will be cloaked with the authority to dispose of the property according to will or according to law. Depending on how the person was appointed, this individual may either be referred to as an executor or an administrator. The difference between the two could not be any more crystal clear. So make sure you understand this before you think about probate solicitors fees UK.
First of all, if the person was nominated expressly through the will of the deceased for purpose of disposing of some parts or all of the estate as specified in the will itself, then that person is called an executor. Multiple executors may be appointed in the will in order to perform specific tasks related to the disposition of the assets and properties of the deceased.
Secondly, if there is no will, or if the will does not specify anyone in particular to become an executor, then the next-of-kin will be appointed by the UK Family Court via a grant of letters of administration. The obligations and duties of this person is identical to a general executor who was not appointed for a specific task. This individual will be legally known as the administrator of the estate.
