Probate Loans

Navigating the complex world of probate and inheritance can be stressful and confusing. Coupled with the emotional distress of losing a loved one, the legalities and financial aspects of gaining legal access to your inheritance can seem overwhelming. The need to settle any remaining debts or cover taxes before claiming legal ownership of assets can be particularly difficult. As a trusted and fully independent UK finance broker, we work hard to reduce these pressures with our tailored probate loan solutions. By adopting a sensitive, flexible, and personable approach to issues with probate, we provide a straightforward way to gain early access to inheritance or bridge gaps during the probate process.

Bridging Loans for Probate

An alternative to a specialist probate loan, bridging loans can serve as an excellent solution to cover inheritance tax bills or gain advance access to your inheritance. Bridging finance provides short-term funding at rates as low as 0.55% per month, allowing you to bridge financial gaps until probate is complete and the inheritance is received. With bridging finance, you can borrow against the equity you have built up in your current home or any other residential or commercial property. These funds can then be used for any legal purpose (including covering IHT), enabling you to gain access to your estate without delay. The full loan balance is then repaid a few months later, either through the sale of the property used as security for the loan or with the capital you inherit as part of your allocated estate. Don’t let financial constraints slow down or stall the probate process. Call UK Property Finance today or email us with details of your requirements, and we will get back to you as promptly as possible.
