Probate Made Simple

At Griffin Solicitors we break down the Probate process into smaller parts, set time limits for each part and work from appointment to appointment in order to ensure that Probate is completed as soon as possible.

Probate involves proving the deceased’s will, identifying and collating their assets, submitting returns to the Revenue Commissioners. Collecting in and distributing these assets to the beneficiaries, and producing estate accounts.

Obtaining a Grant of Probate involves the following steps:

  • Locating the will and identifying the executors
  • Identifying all the assets and debts in the estate. This can be a difficult task when the deceased invested in many areas or invested online with passwords, with no paper trail
  • Filling out a return to Revenue, preparing an Oath for the executor and lodging these documents with the Probate Office
  • Dealing with any query raised by the Probate Office
  • Issuing the Grant of Probate from the Probate Office
  • Gathering in the assets of the deceased, including selling property where required
  • Obtaining written confirmation from the Department of Social Welfare and HSE that they do not have any claim over the estate for non-contributory old age payment or under the Fair Deal scheme
  • Dealing with taxation issues of non-resident beneficiaries
  • Preparation and finalisation of estate accounts
  • Distributing the assets of the estate
  • Payment of inheritance tax by beneficiaries

As this is a sequential process a delay at any one step will delay the whole process.
