Why The Probate Department (brokers) Ltd exists and who we are. We like to think we are different: at heart, we are Estate Planners. That means we look at using Legal Planning to help people through life whilst planning to pass on as much as is possible to future generations. With it becoming so much more difficult for youngsters to get on the housing ladder, inheritances from grandparents and parents are more vital than ever.
This business only acts as probate brokers: finding out what help you need, and matching it to a suitable firm who won’t charge an arm and a leg, but has the necessary expertise. If you just need an hour or so’s help, just say so. Our best saving to date has been 94% on the fees of a national firm you would thing would be inexpensive!
We have a range of associates who can deal with specialised areas, so whatever your requirements, please do get in touch.

The Probate Department process involves working with families to plan for children from long before they are born, and often looking ahead for as much as 125 years. “Wealth cascading down the generations” – something it is far less likely to do without sound Legal Planning (and of course, financial planning, but that is not our area.) Sound Legal Estate Planning is crucial, and dealing with what happens after a death (and trying to reduce the slice taken needlessly by tax) is a part of the Legal Estate Planning process.
The earlier you get in touch with us, the better we can do to look after and protect you and younger and older members of your family.

The Probate Department (brokers): Our Staff.
My background is as as a (non-solicitor) former partner in a probate practice, as a longstanding Professional Will Writer and formerly (it seems a million years ago now) as an Independent Financial Adviser. So I have a grasp of issues in many different disciplines which helps no end in pointing people to the right adviser bearing in mind the size and complexity of the estate and how much involvement the family want,
So what else do clients want?
We think that after that, you will be looking for value for money. Not cheapness, that isn’t the same thing. Quality and knowledge and the ability to resolve problems in a caring fashion are in our opinion more important than just cost.
When it comes to fixed percentage fees, recent research indicated the savings with hourly charges may are even bigger – but a chat with us may help you decide which is the better route for you.
