Most people don't know what probate is

Unfortunately, they find out when they’re snowed under, that it’s a time-consuming process and that one wrong form can delay it by months. What they really want is some space to grieve and enact their loved one's final wishes.

If only there was a better way.

There is. Welcome to Sail Probate.

How do I know if I need probate?

A Grant of Probate is not always required if an estate is less than £5,000. It will be required if there is a property to sell or transfer, if there is a bank account to close with more than £10,000 – £15,000 in it, if there are stocks and shares to sell, or if the deceased did not leave a Will.

How long will it take, and what's involved?

The process is conducted in four distinct stages, which are detailed in the attached PDF. Click the button below to view this in a new tab.

  1. Valuing the Estate
  2. File Inheritance Tax Forms and Pay and Inheritance Tax
  3. Submit the Grant of Probate / Letters of Adminstration application
  4. Administer the Estate

How much would a high street Solicitor charge?

Most Probate Solicitors charge on an hourly basis together with a percentage of the estate and fees can reach over £10,000. You will never pay more than £4,500 with us (plus disbursements which will be agreed with you at the outset of the matter).

On average, a solicitor will charge between 2% and 4% of the estate's value plus an hourly charge – this is roughly around £15,000 for a £500k estate.
