Wills & Inheritance

Johnson & Co, Solicitors, Cork offer a friendly, professional and competitively priced Will writing and advice service, whether you wish to make your first will or you wish to revise your existing Will.

Probate is a term used to describe the process of proving that a will is valid. In order to avoid fraud, wills must be properly executed, i.e. signed and witnessed before the instructions in the will can be accepted as being the genuine wishes of the deceased. Every will in Ireland must be submitted to the Probate Office. If the will is accepted as being a valid will, a Grant of Probate issues. A Grant of Probate is esentially a certificate from the Probate office that the will is valid. If, for example money, is held in a bank account of the deceased, the bank will normally not release monies to the family of the deceased but instead will ony release it to the executor named in the Grant of Probate.

The whole process of preparing a will offers a great peace of mind, ensuring that loved ones are provided for in the manner you want, and that you also have the opportunity to consider the tax effectiveness of this and whether any other lifetime planning is appropriate for your circumstances.

It also means that the responsibility for administering your estate can vest in people whom you have chosen. Johnson & Co, Solicitors have extensive experience in advising on succession planning and drafting wills.
