A grant of probate is the confirmation authorising who is the executor who has been elevated to administer the estate of someone who has passed away. The service of probate includes finalising the affairs of the deceased in terms of their finances and assets. Logistical it is by far the most difficult part of the passing of someone is the allocation of these assets and finalisation of the estate as a whole. Before anyone can start to deal with the allocation of assets to heirs of the estate there are other fundamental aspects which will need to be addresses, such as attending to the bank account of the departed. In order for anyone to have the authority to deal with the bank account of a person who has passed, they will need to request a grant of probate in order to act on their behalf. Something like this is easier if arranged prior to the event of your passing and will leave less for your family to consider while they grieve your loss.

Are there instances where a grant of probate Woking is not required in order to finalise an estate. Lodge Brothers Legal Services attorneys confirm that while there are some instances where this is not required, it is not often something that can be avoided. In an instance where the deceased is a minor child, the parent or legal guardian will be able to attend to the closing of the bank account of the minor child. In situations like this, no will come into play as one needs to be of legal age in order for a will to be recognised. Another instance when probate would not be required is when the estate is worth less than £10,000.

Some of the time, a person may have a joint bank account with another who survives them and who is the recipient of the estate automatically in the event of passing. In a situation like this, probate will not be required however it is always highly recommended that this be confirmed and not simply assumed. An executor would be required to correspond with the banking and other institutions in order to confirm the passing of the person and provide them with proof of death in the form of a death certificate. Once done the application for probate Weighbridge can be avoided as long as everything is in order. If that is not the case then probate will need to be applied for in the usual way, using your legal attorney as an impartial expert who will be able to guide you seamlessly and safely through the process.

Say goodbye the right way with a unique funeral

Benjamin Franklin, wrote in 1789 that “Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” This is something that is very difficult to dispute, even to this day.

This unadulterated truth may well be the case however something that does not have to be as prescribed, is the way in which we celebrate the life of a person when the time comes to bid farewell.

As a child, I was told that my parents felt that I was old enough to go to my grandmother’s funeral which was held in a catholic church which my grandmother fellowshipped during her later years. The church was fairly modern in design, with an unusual flat room, large and interesting stain glass windows filled the room with light; a modernised pulpit took center stage on a slightly raised platform. It was my first funeral and I had no idea what to expect. My grandmother was presented in a closed casket in the middle of the room, towards the front. Her casket was covered in flowers and stood pronounced in the room. It was the first time I had seen a casket and morbidly wondered what it must be like inside one. Those attending were quiet and sombre, despite the pretty colours streaming in through the windows. The hymns were slow and laboured and the priest played his part as he held his censer below the narrowing plate with one hand, allowing it to swing freely. This image is etched in my mind but so is the feeling of complete disconnect I felt.

Death may be a certainty but the type of funeral you chose, does not have to be. Traditions are beautiful and very much required as a part of society to help bring us together in community to mark the special events which punctuate our lives. When it came time for me to bid farewell to my own mother, I knew that there was another way to go about celebrating her life, which is what I know she wanted.

Lodge

With the help of Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors, I was able to replace the sombre memory I had of my grandmother's passing but choosing an alternative funeral for my mother. When it comes to thinking about it, there are many ways in which you can say “I love you” one more time at the funeral of your loved one. Traditional funerals are often being replaced by original funerals which are far more personal and individual funerals as the life of the person you are saying goodbye to. Lodge Brothers have extensive experience assisting families with special funeral requests and will also provide you with various alternate ideas for the day. A funeral is always sad but can it can also be beautiful, simple, sentimental and heartfelt event that can give you peace of mind knowing that you have celebrated someone’s life in the most respectful and positive way possible.

Probate services everyone needs

For most people, life involves the process of growing, learning and then using what we have learnt, to become our own independent people who have skills and experience which we use, to gather things as we go through life. It is a sign of success for a person to be able to gather many material assets during their life but mostly it is something that must happen, so that we can live our best life and provide stability and security to our families. Whether you do life in a traditional way or if you are someone who does things differently, there is always a need for the things that make your life easier and more secure, allowing you to support important people in your life as well as yourself.

Perhaps your first real possession was a watch, one that you saved for through hard work and dedication. Perhaps a car that you were eventually able to buy after years of working towards that goal. And there is a myriad of technologies that we can purchase during the years of our lives, as we grow up and eventually into old age.

When you look around you and see what you have managed to accrue in terms of material things, take a minute to also think about what would happen to all of those hard-earned large and small items that form part of your life, if you should happen to not come home at the end of the day to use them. The point is that this is a likely possibility for everyone eventually. Yet how many times do you think about what will happen to your possessions when you are gone? Honestly, this is something that most people think very little about. Life is for the living after all!

Probate is another that very few people will take a minute to think about on any given day. In fact, what is probate really? While it is actually quite a simple judicial process whereby your will is “proved” will in a court of law, the practice is something that not many will really think of as being important. Without this probate process of administering your estate, all of your material possessions may end up in the wrong hands or with people that you feel may not benefit as much from your life’s accumulated possessions, as someone else possibly would. This is why it is so important to stop, take the time to think about how Lodge Brothers probate Feltham can assist and decide what you would like to happen when the time comes. This is where Lodge Brothers Legal Services is of vital assistance to you and your family. Probate is just one of the professional legal services that Lodge Brothers offers and all of these services will be of utmost importance to your family. Probate services at Lodge Brothers legal services are offered at a fixed fee which is agreed to in advance, depending on your requirements.

However, when you make that decision, you can rest assured that everything to do with your estate will expertly and legally be processed just as you wanted it to be.

Time to say goodbye in style

Lodge Home

The passing of a loved one can have a devastating effect on those left behind, especially when the passing is unexpected. Even when the loss is somewhat expected, resulting from a long-term or prolonged illness or disability, nothing can really prepare someone for the day when they receive “that” call.

Sometimes, families have the chance to be with their loved ones at the moment of passing, which can leave them with a sense of peace after the event, knowing that they were by their side in their last moments. However, not everyone is able to experience the last moments with their loved ones and see them pass peacefully on. No matter how it happens, nothing quite prepares a person for the finality of the event.

How and when this happens is not something that anyone is able to ultimately control however what we do have control over is how we chose to remember our loved ones and how we say farewell to them. Everyone is an individual, and when starting to arrange a funeral, there is no greater respect than giving them the farewell that matches how they chose to live their lives. Your loved one can be released in a way that is as original as all of our personalities.

How we say farewell, is not only a reflection on how our dearly beloved wanted to be remembered but so too is it a chance for loved ones to show one last time, just how much that person meant to them. It is a healing rite of passage for the family and the friends who will miss the departed and now struggle with how to imagine their lives without that special person. Having a ceremony at the end of a life, is as much about the living as it is about the departed. Celebrate your loved one by making reference to their hobbies, interests, and career or life experiences and show them how much you respected their life, in other ways such as choosing a modern coffin, using a particular colour theme or dress code for the day, choosing particular music that your loved one enjoyed, or providing photographic displays at the wake.

Historically, funerals are highly ritualised and traditionally aligned to religious ceremonies as formal and earnest in nature. More and more people chose to celebrate life rather than focus on the loss itself and are looking for ways to help them express the love of life that they so keenly feel when someone’s life is lost. Lodge Brothers understand how important a bespoke funeral can be and treat all funerals with the exact level of respect that is required at the end of someone’s life. Lodge Brothers also understand that as different as we are all are in life, is the case in death and offers many ways for families who prefer non-religious or ethnically diverse ceremonies. Regardless of race or religious beliefs, Lodge Brother staff will guide you through the process to help you achieve a ceremony that is right for you and your deceased loved one. If you prefer a non-religious service, it can be arranged for a Humanist or Civil Celebrant to officiate at the funeral.

Whichever way that Lodge Brothers can help you at this important time, is exactly what you can expect to receive, speak to them about how to celebrate the life of your loved one with an alternative memorial.

A person’s estate can be complex and in any instance where no Will was drawn up, the estate is made even more difficult to administer. If the estate executor is not from a legal background, then certainly the most beneficial and expedient manner of dealing with the logistics of the estate, especially during this particularly distressing time, would be to engage with a Probate Guildford attorney.

An executor of an estate is responsible for locating all of the financial documentation pertaining to organisations who have provided financial assistance to the departed individual and advising them of the demise of the individual which has now become an estate. The administer of the estate would need to establish the financial value of the estate and ensure that bank account are frozen so that no person, who is not entitled to access the money of the departed individual, has access to the funds he or she may have accrued. New accounts will be opened on the estate’s behalf which will be used to administer any inheritance taxes issues from Inland Revenue and attend to other debts and liabilities which need to be paid from the estate.

Documentation includes preparing Probate papers which are to be issued to the Probate registry in order to attain a Grant of Probate or a Grant of Letter of Administration, which will enable the executor to process the settlement of the liabilities and administer the assets of the state in the manner required in the legal Will of the deceased, or if there is no written will, in line with requirements of the intestate estate instructed by the probate court. In the eventuality that the Will be found as being invalid, probate court will need to take over the directions of possessions in line with beneficiary designation prescribed by the court.
