Wills & Probate Insurance

Wills & Probate Insurance (also known as Estate Administration Insurance)

When an individual dies someone has responsibility for the administration and Distribution of their Estate.  In the event that the deceased left a will (a ‘testate’ estate), the document will appoint executors.  In the event that there is no will (intestacy), an administrator will be appointed.

In either case, the responsibilities are onerous and a number of problems can arise from an inability to trace beneficiaries to a will being discovered after distribution.

Estate Insurances

LawSure Insurance provides a comprehensive range of estate administration and estate distribution insurances to support the distribution of the deceased’s estate.

In all cases, we act as an independent broker with access to the broadest range of insures. We contact multiple insurers and obtain competitive terms for each case, in turn saving you the substantial work and cost involved in contacting multiple providers yourself. This

  • Provides your clients with the best options,
  • If you are a solicitor, satisfies the SRA requirements relating to client choice and the requirements of the Insurance Distribution Directive, and
  • Identifies the best terms for the case (this can often be a combination of wordings, insurer assumptions, financial security etc. as well as price).

The estate insurances that we provide to support Estate administration and distribution range from Missing Beneficiary insurance to Unoccupied Property cover and Missing Will to comprehensive Executor and Beneficiary protection.
