Affinion Probate are specialists in delivering a fast and affordable Grant of Probate service, together with a range of related services.
We stand out from the crowd as we not only deliver the Grant of Probate for £475 inclusive of VAT and the court fee (which is market leading), but also guarantee a delivery time of 30 working days. No other providers of these services offer such a competitive price and guarantee a delivery time.
When obtaining the Grant of Probate, Affinion will complete all of the legal and tax responsibilities required, enabling you to then administer the deceased’s estate.
Should you prefer to have the entire estate administration taken care of for you, Affinion can also do this. This would mean not only applying for the Grant, but also collecting in the assets, paying any debts, preparing accounts and distributing the remainder of the estate to the beneficiaries.
What other services do we offer?
Alongside these Probate and Estate Administration services, Affinion offer additional services that may be required for certain estates, such as conveyancing and publishing statutory notifications.
If there is a property in the estate it may require a transfer of title ownership or be sold. For a fixed fee Affinion can help to: transfer the ownership of property from the sole name of the deceased to the beneficiaries; transfer the ownership of jointly owned property from the deceased to the surviving joint owner; arrange for the sale of the property by appointing and dealing with an Estate Agent and Conveyancer.
Section 27 of the Trustee Act 1925 enables Personal Representatives to protect themselves from liability against any claims from creditors of the deceased’s estate. This includes advertising the intention to convey or distribute the estate through a notice placed in The London Gazette and the deceased’s local newspaper, setting out a period of at least 2 months for any interested parties to send the particulars of their claim to the Personal Representative
Affinion Bereavement Notification Service
A notification service to quickly inform banks, building societies, utility providers and insurance companies about the recent bereavement. This enables accounts to be frozen so that the deceased’s identity and assets can be protected.
This service is most helpful just after the bereavement as there are many things to do. Informing companies at an early stage helps to protect the deceased’s identity from theft and fraud. Using Affinion’s service will help to save you both time and inconvenience.
Stop unwanted mail to the home of the deceased
Receiving mail addressed to the deceased can be very distressing. We can help to stop mail being sent to the address of the deceased by registering with ‘The Bereavement Register’. This service is completely free of charge and within 2-3 months of registering all marketing and sales literature will stop.
