Join The UK’s Leading Will Writing & Estate Planning Franchise

Established in 2005, APS Legal & Associates has grown to become one of the most widely recognised and trusted brands in the Will Writing and Estate Planning Profession. Through its ground-breaking approach to franchising, APS Legal & Associates offers support to over 6,000 Financial Advisers across the country.

As one of the largest members of the IPW (Institute of Professional Will Writers), and with 530 qualified Associates across the country, our approach in a traditionally fragmented industry has allowed us to build a strong brand name with rapidly increasing recognition.

All of our ‘in house’ staff are full IPW members, with the Senior Staff also being STEP qualified, and our Associates are Associate IPW members and follow the Trading Standards Institute approved code of practice. The need for our services in protecting our client’s estates is becoming ever more important as it provides peace of mind, particularly at a time when this sector is often discussed and in the media.

What Do We Look For in a Franchisee?

Because full training and support is included, you don’t need any past legal or probate experience. The low investment coupled with the full training and support offered, makes the APS Legal & Associates opportunity an incredible attractive opportunity – however to ensure our franchisees uphold the values our brand represent, we ensure prospective franchisees can:

  • See themselves running an APS Legan & Associates franchise
  • Demonstrate a passion for providing the highest levels of customer service
  • Show that they have a genuine interest for probate law and the services our company offers
  • Aspire to uphold the values that APS Legal & Associates implements in its franchise network

Become a Probate Associate

To become a Probate Associate also means you can also assist your clients family. To complete this training you can simply log onto our two training webinars at just an hour each with the self-test. There is no examination attached to this; with Probate cases there is very little work for the Associate to perform: whilst you will act as the client contact and gather the information of the estate, our Probate Department will carry out all the administration work for you, including obtaining the Grant of Probate.

The main role of a probate associate is to act as a Client contact and to gather information for the PID A form. Once this has been submitted to our head office, the Probate Team can provide a quote within 2 working days. The associate then adds their fee on top of this and communicates the quote to the client. If accepted, then PID B form would then be completed and submitted to our Probate Team. After this initial stage, the majority of the administration is completed by our probate department. Our probate team have a combined experience of over 20 years in this industry.

The cost for becoming a Probate Associate is £125.00 per year; however the fees that a probate case can generate for you are significant, with an average earning of £2,000 per case. Learn more about the additional revenue stream opportunities by enquiring below.
