BTMK Solicitors – Probate Experts in Southend-on-Sea

BTMK Solicitors is proud to include a dedicated team of Private Client specialists, whose delicate and professional approach ensures that all of our clients receive the best legal support available. Our team consists of specialists from FW Goodson (since May 2015) and BTMK Todmans (since September 2018).


We’re experts in this field and members of STEP. We can provide the entire range of estate administration services and we’ll work with you if there are parts that you feel comfortable in dealing with, leaving us to deal with the rest.Our role is to make the probate and estate administration process as simple and as stress free as possible. We can obtain the Grant of Representation, ensure that the deceased’s tax liabilities are settled, and our job of course is to make sure that assets are realised, other liabilities are paid and the estate is distributed in accordance with the will or with the law. We ensure that collaborate with our property law department to ensure that any consequential sale takes place quickly and with minimal disruption. If the estate includes a business, we can involve our company and commercial lawyers to give the best advice possible.


Whether you have concerns about the validity of a Will, the interpretation of a Will, the manner in which an estate or trust is being administered, or have not received what you expected by way of inheritance, our specialist team can assist. Inheritance disputes are more and more common and our preferred route is always to avoid a dispute from escalating. We are one of the few firms in the region that has a highly experienced litigation solicitor specialising in any claim or defence under the Inheritance Act 1975, challenges to the validity of a will, forged will disputes and also trust disputes which are also increasingly common. We have years of experience in dealing with the mediation process, an alternative dispute resolution method which is almost always suitable for disputes of this nature. However, you can rest assured that where alternative dispute resolution is not possible, we’ll fight your corner robustly and ensure that you obtain the best outcome possible.

You can call us 24/7 on 03300 585 222, speak to an expert via our live chat feature or organise a call-back, email exchange or meeting via our contact form. You can meet with any of our legal teams across all specialisms at either of our dedicated Southend offices, or at any one of our other offices in Leigh-on-Sea, Rayleigh and London.
