Using a probate solicitor isn’t compulsory in England or Wales, but doing probate yourself is not a task to be entered into lightly. Probate can be a lengthy and time consuming process, which can involve many hours of administrative work and take a year or more to complete.

If you make any mistakes when carrying out any of this work, you could be held legally or financially responsible. If you instruct a probate solicitor to carry out this work on your behalf, they will take responsibility for their work.

In addition, a probate solicitor is a specialist in estate administration. They will be experienced in administering estates, finding missing assets, locating beneficiaries, liaising with HMRC and applying all available tax reliefs and exemptions. This can help to ensure that the beneficiaries of the estate receive the full inheritance that they’re entitled to, while reducing any personal risk to the executor or administrator of the estate.

In England and Wales, the amount of time it takes to go through probate is the same, regardless of whether or not the deceased left a will.
