We are sometimes asked to take over a probate. In a recent case Mrs Y came to us because her probate solicitors were unable to understand how to deal with the implications of her late husband having been in a professional partnership.
As a result, there had been no proper identification of what was his and what were the assets of the partnership. Eventually we were able to carry out, to the satisfaction of the Inland Revenue, comprehensive recalculations of what was due. Fortunately Mrs Y did not have to pay substantially more in tax.
But as she said she wished that she had come to the experts in the first place. Although probate is our specialism, our solicitors and managers have experience and expertise in other legal areas which could have an impact on the correct treatment of probate issues.
