Named Probate Provider of the Year 2018, Co-op Legal Services has the largest team of Probate specialists in the country, and is trusted to deal with over £1.3 billion in Estates annually. We help and support thousands of bereaved individuals and families many of whom come to us from Co-op Funeralcare. As part of the Co-op Group, our values of openness, honesty, social responsibility and caring for others are core to the service we provide.

With our Probate Complete Service we take full responsibility for getting the Grant of Probate and dealing with the Legal, Tax (excluding VAT), Property and Estate Administration affairs on your behalf. A local Probate Consultant can meet with you in your home or another location (in England or Wales) to explain the Probate process, to answer your questions, and to provide you with a written Fixed Fee Probate quotation.

Once we have provided you with a written quote for the agreed work to be done that price will not change, unless the original information we are given is shown to be incorrect or circumstances change.

We can pay all the costs of a Co-op Funeralcare funeral and pay back any deposit paid, if you instruct us to represent you; providing that the Estate owns sufficient assets that can be sold in due course.

Co-op Members save £100 or get 5% off, whichever is higher, on Probate and Estate Administration, terms & conditions apply.

There are no upfront costs to pay as our Probate and Estate administration fees are deferred and will be taken from the Estate once it is in funds.

“Many thanks to the Probate team who handled my Mum's Estate. I can only say that the help and support I have received from yourselves have made things much easier, and it was so much more professional than the experience I had when dealing with my late uncle's Estate.
