Probate services

How we support you

Our Probate service helps you to achieve the best outcomes,
while ensuring the process is as painless as possible for you and your family. 


Cutting through the knots of probate

Probate can be a complicated and time-consuming process. Ensuring the best outcomes requires intimate knowledge of the law and inheritance tax legislation.

A Grant of Probate is a legal process which is required to administer an estate. It will be needed if the deceased has left more than £5,000, owns property in sole name or as a tenant in common, has any stocks or shares, or owns certain insurance policies.

Appointing an independent, professional probate attorney helps you to achieve the best outcomes, while ensuring the process is as painless as possible for you and your family. Appointing a professional attorney can also help to avoid disputes.

Our probate service service also includes inheritance tax planning for beneficiaries who want to vary the terms of a will using a deed of variation.



Supporting you with major life events

Many clients find it helpful to speak with us when a major life event occurs, but it can be equally useful to speak with us if your circumstances have changed, or if some time has passed since you last looked at your financial affairs in detail.

Please contact us if you would like to receive a no obligation Wealth Health check from Aetas Partners, so that we can work with you to ensure you and your family are provided for in accordance with your wishes.

Our approach

Everyone benefits from having a robust lifetime financial and succession strategy. We believe that the strategy works best when it incorporates and co-ordinates the elements of professional advice most relevant to you and your loved ones.

We work with you to clarify your needs and objectives. We then highlight areas where you would benefit from advice, and then identify, recommend and manage the professional partners on your behalf. The approach brings together the right team, while providing you with certainty and peace of mind.

We know the leading advisers in their fields. We can help connect you to them and co-ordinate their services on your behalf. Working in collaboration with these professional partners, we implement and curate a tailored plan and make sure this is delivered in an integrated way, while recognising and responding to changes in your goals and circumstances.

Your professional advisory team will be proactive in building up and protecting your wealth, while also taking into account the needs of beneficiaries across different generations.

In our world, this kind of high touch support is referred to as a ‘family office’. Traditionally, a family office has been reserved for the highest net worth clients. Now, Aetas is making this service available more widely, so you and your family can benefit.
