Document assembly and database

Access Legal Wills & Probate case management system produces all the letters, forms and legal documents that you need. It really is comprehensive and contains a huge pre-existing precedent bank. Our software looks at a probate case and decides which clauses and paragraphs to use. Then it automatically builds documents tailored to your case based on specific entered data. 

The database is stored so you are not re-entering details such as place of marriage, name of children, executors, beneficiaries and so on, making it easy to recreate a will time and time again.

Precedents include:

  • Letters to legatees (inform interim payments paying)
  • Inland Revenue payment of tax
  • Letters to public utilities
  • Statement of Truth (letters of administration, grant of probate)
  • Letters to life assurance companies
  • Application for Grant
  • Letters to asset holders (banks, etc)
  • Notice to local papers
  • Letters to lenders (credit card firms, etc)
  • Schedules of assets (liabilities, income, expenditure)
  • Letters to Local Authority, DVLA, etc
