General information on wills


You can find most of the information you need to know about wills and probate in their separate sections. In this section we set out information on the role of an executor and about getting a solicitor to help you with the administration of an estate. We also take a look at the laws of intestacy which apply if someone dies without a valid will.

You can also find further general information about the wills and probate processes. For more specific information about estate planning you can find this in our estate planning section.

If you would like to obtain legal advice on trusts, we can put you in touch with a local specialist solicitor. Our service is free. So if you have any questions or would like our help in finding local expert solicitors please call us on 0800 1777 162.
