Benefits of Instructing Us to Manage a Relatives Administration

Probate and Estate Administration

Do I need a Solicitor?

If you and your family are in a position where you have unfortunately lost a loved one, you may ask yourself whether you need to instruct a Solicitor.

The short answer is no – you do not need to instruct a Solicitor.  Nevertheless we believe there are benefits to instructing solicitors.  At McKeag & Co. we have been representing clients for almost 100 years. 

Here are our 5 top reasons why instructing us to obtain a Grant of Probate and/or manage your relatives Estate would be beneficial to you.


Possibly the most common reason why we are instructed to act is due to the knowledge and expertise we have built up over a number of years.  It can become extremely complex and it is often a very difficult time.  Our expertise helps families to understand the process. We have a great deal of expertise in dealing with Estates of varying sizes.


Administering an Estate is time-consuming, therefore by instructing McKeag and Co. to act on your behalf, the time-consuming work will be done for you by professionals with extensive experience working in this area.



You can have complete confidence your matter is in good hands.  Our track record should also provide you with confidence in us.

Transparent fees

Instructing a Solicitor will of course incur fees.  In addition to this, we will also offer a free no-obligation initial consultation before you formally instruct us.  We will always outline our fees to you before taking you on as a client, so there won’t be any surprises at the end of the process.



Overall, there is no legal need to instruct a Solicitor to administer an Estate, however, there are huge benefits in doing so and having a Solicitor who specialises specifically in this area by your side will ensure you are protected as an Executor and your matter is in the best possible hands.
