You might think that doing probate yourself will save you money and that you can do it quicker yourself. If I can give you one piece of advice it would be to think again.
Administering an estate can take months and even years. Once you accept the responsibility of executing the estate it is a job for life. You can’t simply resign or decide to step down once you have started carrying out your duties.
You also make yourself personally liable if things go wrong. As solicitors, we have special insurance measures to protect us should a situation like that ever arise. Do you have the same protection?
“Debra dealt with my matter extremely efficiently and professionally. She explained everything clearly to me and took all the worry out of the process. It was a quick and overall a very positive experience. I have already recommended her to friends and family due to the fantastic value for money and brilliant customer service. Thank you so much.” - Miss H (Windsor)

P.S. If you do decide to manage probate yourself, I strongly recommend that you advertise in the Gazette, the UK's official public record, for any unknown creditors to come forward, once you have received the grant of probate. If you do not, then you could be held personally liable for unidentified debts.
