Testimonials

"I am only too pleased to thank Miss Jamie Dobbs for the way she dealt with firstly my Mothers Estate and then My Will, always very professional and caring. I just knew I would get on well with her the very first second that I met her. Always had all the information at hand and took the time to explain things clearly in a cool, calm and collective manner. During a very stressful time it was nice to be dealing with such a lovely person."

"Jamie Dobbs dealt with the matter of handling our mothers will in a most efficient manner keeping us informed of everything from start to finnish [sic]. Nothing seemed too much trouble even chasing the long lost siblings to ensure no stone was left unturned. An extremely excellent service thank you."

"Over the last forty years I have cause to deal with many law firms both in a personal and professional capacity, including some ‘top’ London Companies. In all of those dealings I have never found anyone as proactive and so willing to offer help and advice as Jamie Dobbs. During the last two years Jamie guided my parents through the completion of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Helped myself with the use of the LPA and recently dealing with Probate and Estate Administration following their death. To deal with someone with Jamie’s patience, kindness and professionalism is so unusual and has made a very difficult time quite easy for myself and my family. Thank you."

"From initial contact until completion of the Will and Lasting Power of Attorney Maples Solicitors and in particular Jamie Dobbs handled the matter very professionally. In addition she was extremely patient and understanding of a difficult matter. The home visits made the completion much easier particularly when dealing with clients with restricted mobility."

"I recommended Miss Jamie Dobbs because she conducted the revision of my Will, also the Grant of Probate required and two LPA’S I took out.  All correspondence was well collated and clear and charges transparent in a business like and professional manner. Jamie possessed a calm, efficient persona at all our meetings during 2015. Her pleasant, personality was a source of support for myself and my family at a very difficult time of bereavement and grieving. I wish to thank all staff at Maples for their courteous, efficient manner while I was in contact with the company."


Obtain Probate for as little as £399 image

Obtain Probate for as little as £399

It is of course a very difficult time if a loved one has passed away both emotionally and from a practical perspective in dealing with their Estate. You may have been appointed as an Executor of an Estate and it may be necessary to obtain a Grant of Probate to administer the Estate.

As an Executor you can make an application direct to the Probate Registry in order to obtain the Grant, though this can be a time-consuming and sometimes difficult process as you will still have to complete the necessary Inheritance Tax Return. Whilst we appreciate some Executors are happy and comfortable dealing with the Probate Registry directly we believe that some Executors still like the assistance of a professional in this process. We will be able to guide you through the whole process from beginning to obtaining the Grant of Probate in a friendly and efficient manner to help ease the burden on you at what is already a difficult time.

We can help you obtain the Grant of Probate for a one off fee of £399 (depending upon the complexity of the Estate) which includes the Probate Registry Fee and VAT.
