A Grant of Probate is a formal document which allows you to deal with a deceased’s estate (assets and belongings). You do not need a contentious probate solicitor to apply for this and useful guidance is provided by the government at https://www.gov.uk/wills-probate-inheritance/applying-for-a-grant-of-representation. Only certain types of people though are entitled to apply and there may be inheritance tax payable as well probate fees.
