Is it best to seek some help or do probate yourself?
Whether you seek some help in our experience depends upon time, cost and convenience.
We aim to take away the stress and hassle that dealing with probate often involves. As we specialise in probate, this means that we know exactly how the system works, what forms to complete, who to contact and how best to get probate as quickly and conveniently as possible.
Our fixed fee service doesn’t cost thousands either – in most cases we can obtain probate quickly and easily in just 3-5 weeks while all costs are deferred until the end of the case.
In our experience we find that applying for probate by yourself does take longer.
Other issues to consider:-
- We are fully insured – if errors occur then the Executor remains liable
- Is there a problem with the will? eg. Are the terms clear ? is there an issue over the meaning of the will? We have experience in dealing with all these issues.
- Having an impartial solicitor helps ensure that family disputes do not arise over the estate distribution
Having an expert undertake probate, provides carries a degree of reassurance to our clients.
