At Emmersons our Expert Probate Solicitors see their role as being to help you during one of the most stressful times of your life. Our aim is to remove some of the stress and worry from you and to move matters forward at a pace that suits you.
For example, in one of our cases our client lost a close family member and, as a lawyer, they assumed they would be able to handle the estate of their relative quickly and easily. This, however, was not the case. They could not bring themselves to deal with the clearance of a home that held many childhood memories and as a result, other beneficiaries were becoming frustrated.
Emmersons Specialist Probate Lawyers stepped in and organised our cleaning team to sort out the house and its contents. Later that week, after only three hours, the team had cleared the house of all unwanted furniture, had taken everything away in a skip and had cleaned every part of the house from top to bottom. They also provided a gardening team who presented the garden ready for potential buyers. We then appointed Estate Agents who placed the property on the market for sale a few days later; they found a buyer within a month.
We have a team of Expert Probate Solicitors in Newcastle and Sunderland who deal with Probate on a daily basis. We are frequently appointed as Executors when our clients’ make their wills. We can take over the administrative burden from you. We are used to dealing with all aspects of an estate especially if the family live in a different part of the country or overseas.
Valuing and Auctioneering of jewellery and furniture - our Valuers can also value specialist collections and will remove heavy items to their auction rooms on your behalf.
Estate Agents - as property must be valued for probate purposes. We can appoint agents on your behalf to sell the property.
House Clearance Specialists - the team we use can organise skips, gardening and the complete clearance of property. They provide an excellent service, literally transforming houses ready for sale.
Specialist Insurers – it is essential that any empty property is insured. This can often be difficult to arrange without a specialist broker. We can arrange this for you.
In-House Conveyancing Team – they are ready to step in and complete the sale or transfer of your property as soon as Probate has been granted.
Price – We do not charge a % of the estate making our fees much cheaper than banks and building societies.
Less Stress For You – We can deal with all of the paperwork and practical issues at a time when you may not be able to cope.
Funeral Payments – We can often obtain payment directly from the deceased’s bank account, thus saving you and your family unnecessary worry.

Validity of Wills – We can advise you as to whether the will you have located is valid.
