Striving to put an end to Executor stress

 In Probate

Disclaimer: LawSkills provides training for the legal industry and does not provide legal advice to members of the public. For help or guidance please seek the services of a qualified practitioner.

Did you know, PLG are property experts who specialise in providing legal professionals with support for matters related to probate?
This is pretty much all we do, which means we have become pretty good at it!

Having worked alongside solicitors, probate practitioners, estate administrators, professional and lay executors as well as genealogists for over 12 years now, we have been able to put together the service you have told us you want – meaning that for the first time you have access to your own team that is able to help with every aspect of the property part of the process.

So rather than having to shop around for vacant property insurance, or sourcing an estate agent you can hopefully trust, or maybe arranging a RICS, you can now make one phone call and everything you need is accessible in one place.

How much better is that?!

So, what drives us to deliver this better, more cost-effective way of working?
Simple, we believe executors deserve better. Our vision was to create a way of supporting people when they needed it the most, by ensuring we remain true to our core values.
