Administration of Estates & Probate


The administration of a loved one's estate can be a complicated and overwhelming experience. Unless you have experienced bereavement previously, you may be unsure just what you have to do.

At Temperley Taylor, our dedicated team of probate solicitors make the process as simple and straight forward as possible. We take a professional and sensitive approach that will provide you with the finest legal advice and guide you through this difficult time.

Our solicitors have experience with estates of all sizes and will seek to find the most effective way to administer the deceased's assets. For more information on how we can help you today, contact our Middleton office on 0161 643 2411, or our Heywood office on 01706 623 511.


The probate services we offer

Our solicitors offer a variety of legal services to help you deal with all of the legal, tax and administrative processes after the death of a loved one. We provide a complete solution including funeral arrangements, applying for the grant of probate and distributing the estate, as well as advice for:

  • Contentious probate disputes
  • Estate planning disputes
  • Deeds of variation

Additional probate services include:

  • Registering the death
  • Inheritance Tax account & payments
  • Collection of assets
  • Paying any debts
  • Finalising the income tax position


What happens if there is no will?

If no will exists, we can help you apply for a Grant of Letters of Administration. Gaining a Grant of Letters of Administration will allow you to be the administrator of the estate, which is needed to distribute the deceased's assets. Our solicitors will obtain the grant as swiftly as possible, so you can begin the process and focus on other matters.
