You do not always have to use a solicitor when dealing with an estate. However, it can be a daunting prospect to apply for probate by yourself.
Sometimes people want us to deal with the whole estate from start to finish. Others want us to provide help and advice when required. We are happy to do either. Some people only want us to apply for the application for the Grant of Representation.
By using a solicitor, it can take the stress out of a difficult time. It can also mean that you have more time to deal with your loss. Generally speaking, our clients feel reassured that their loved one’s estate is being handled by professionals and therefore can be resolved quicker than if you were doing it themselves.
It can also be beneficial to have someone to resolve disputes and tension about ‘who gets what’.
