Probate Administration

Professional executor?

Why should you appoint a professional executor?

By appointing a professional Executor, you can rest easy knowing that the administration process will be dealt with by a dedicated and experienced team. A professional Executor will relieve you of any stress and burden at what can be a difficult time.

More importantly, a professional Executor will take on the liability associated with the administration of an estate and will be fully insured in the event of any issues arising.

As members of the Society of Will Writers we are introducers for the SWW Trust Corporation Probate Services.

Our services


Our probate services

Full administration

With the full administration Service we are able to deal with everything on behalf of our clients. This includes valuing the assets, applying for probate, calling in the assets and preparing estate accounts before eventually distributing to the named beneficiaries. Each case has its own dedicated case manager who will handle the case from start to finish.

Grant assist service

We are also able to offer an additional Grant Assist Service where clients are able to administer an estate themselves but would like assistance to obtain the grant of probate. This would involve valuing all assets, preparing the grant application, which would be sent to the executors for completion.

What does it cost?

At East Coast Estate Planning, we have a fixed, transparent pricing policy. That means you know exactly what you'll need to pay - with no nasty surprises!
