Whenever is probate required?
Probate is often only required if a person owns real estate, a company, or money that is kept in a financial institution and that institution will not release the money without a grant, probate, or letters of administration. If a person hasn't handed away all of their assets before dying, that is. There is no defined protocol for when banks and building societies will advise you that probate is required and that you must obtain probate.
In the London area, probate is often not required unless a facility has assets worth more than $5,000. We are aware of numerous banks that will discharge up to £50,000 without the need for probate. The amount of money to issue must be determined by the bank based on a number of variables. If you live in London and need probate, they are unlikely to tell you that you need probate. They will request that you sign an indemnification with fixed-fee probate services instead, which will protect them from liability if you were to steal the money.
