Applying for Confirmation (Probate) in Scotland

Applying for confirmation can seem daunting, even if you have done it before.
The process of valuing the estate and having that confirmed by the court can be complex and it can be difficult to know where to start. Gathering information from insurance companies, banks, and building societies and compiling other financial evidence regarding the estate can be time-consuming.
Our Confirmation-only service helps you handle the initial administrative aspects of winding up your loved one’s estate. We will help you identify and value the estate and fill in the relevant forms, including Form C1 and Form IHT 200, if necessary.
Bonds of Caution
If the estate is over £50,000 and there is no will (and the executor IS NOT the deceased’s spouse or civil partner) then you will require what is known as a bond of caution. This is a form of insurance provided by an insurance company, and they usually require a solicitor to be used for the entire process.
