Three simple steps...

Simply enter the details of the executor(s), the deceased (including their assets and liabilities) and any beneficiaries. The executors and beneficiaries can check the progress at any time

Our system calculates and populates the probate forms you need for the Grant of Probate and recommends any services you may need for estate planning and administration

Once you have the Grant of Probate, our system helps you manage the disbursements and suggests appropriate advisory services to help you accurately and efficiently distribute the estate

You don’t need professional legal help when applying for probate, you can do it yourself, and we’ll be with you every step of the way – guaranteed.

Most people haven’t administered an estate before, that’s why The Inheritance Guide was set up – to make a daunting prospect easy at a time when you need some support.
