Form PA2 is a guide to obtain probate for people acting without a solicitor. The 7 page document explains what probate is, how to apply, the procedure and which forms you need to fill out. It is provided by the Government probate administrators; HM Courts & Tribunals Service.
While it details how you apply, it offers no further help with the many other tasks you'll have to perform to in the event of a death and to gain access to the estate. It is not meant as a substitute for legal advice. PA2 is far from exhaustive and in particularly complex cases it is recommended that you seek professional guidance.

Complete Service - IWC offer a low cost, fixed fee probate service. This means we'll agree the fee with you before we start work. You'll know exactly how much it will cost from the outset so there'll be no unexpected charges later on. Our low cost fee is calculated fairly, based on the amount of work we have to undertake, we do not base our fees on the value of the estate.
Some banks and solicitors charge between 1-5% of the estate value. We believe this is unfair – dealing with a bank account should cost the same, no matter how much money it contains. Nor do we charge hourly rates or extra for phone-calls and letters. It's all included in a fixed fee which doesn't even need to be paid in advance. Save yourself the time and effort of reading and filling out Probate Forms PA2, PA1, PA3, PA4 etc. and call us on 0800 612 6105 for your free quote.
