Probate is needed if the estate is valued above the probate threshold, plus the assets owned are in one name only despite there being a will.
Unreliability of Email and Payments
A scam is a type of fraud used by criminals to trick you into giving them money or personal details. To help scams appear genuine, sometimes criminals will use the name of law firms, solicitors, or other individuals within the firm without their knowledge. In particular, the risk posed by criminals intercepting emails and changing correct bank details is increasing). To minimise this risk, we will never change our bank details or send our bank details by email alone. You must always call your case handler to verify our bank details. We do not accept any responsibility if you fail to follow our instructions.
Law firms are being targeted by criminals to conduct cyber fraud. Law firms work with relevant authorities and regulators to take proactive steps to prevent incidents occurring. The Solicitors Regulation Authority consider this to be a high risk to the legal profession and to the public and provide an update of recent scam alerts on their website.
