General information on probate


There are many different elements to probate, and little strands of information that it's really useful to know about. That's why we have this general section, as we have included some miscellaneous bits and pieces that you may find useful.

We explain how the Probate Service works, and about the confirmation process in Scotland (Scotland’s equivalent of probate). We also explain when and why you might wish to consider getting legal advice and why using a solicitor to handle probate and the administration of an estate for you is highly recommended.

If you would like to obtain expert legal advice then Contact Law can put you in touch with a local specialist solicitor free of charge. So if you have any questions or would like our help in finding local specialist solicitors please call us on 0800 1777 162.
