Free Probate Information

The Oratto Website is a comprehensive, free-to-use online resource of information and guides on probate, estate administration, Wills as well as intestate estates (where there is no Will). Our very helpful and useful guide - What to do When Someone Dies - is a practical step-by-step guide to the necessary tasks that you may face after a family member or loved one has died. 

If you have any questions, or would like some help with any aspect of probate, estate administration or intestate estates, please call our National Helpline on 01243 850603 where you can speak with an experienced and friendly adviser.  Lines are open Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) from 8:30am to 5:30pm. If you require an evening or weekend appointment, or to request  a call-back during our opening hours please email us at

The Oratto fixed-fee Probate Quote Calculator can also save you money on probate and estate administration fees.  Simply complete the questions in the online calculator and you will be presented with instant onscreen quotes from our specialist probate solicitors for you to peruse, in the comfort of your own home. There are no legal fees to pay upfront, and there's no need to use a local solicitor as all our probate lawyers accept cases across Cornwall and the South-West.
