If you are planning to obtain a grant of probate without a solicitor, especially if you are feeling a little daunted by the process, read this book first! After looking after mother-in-law’s financial affairs for many years, I decided to carry out probate myself and started out on what I thought could be a lengthy and arduous process. It was not. There were hiccups, of course, but none of any great consequence. The process didn’t take long, and it was not expensive. Anyone of reasonable intelligence, who can use a computer, write letters, keep accurate records, and understand official guidance should be perfectly capable of obtaining grant of probate and administering an estate. This is a diary of how it went. It includes some example spreadsheets and letters, the costs incurred and the amount of time spent on each stage. It is not a typical ‘How To’ guide, but is a record of my personal experience. I hope it will encourage others to take the plunge.
Amazon Reviewer: A very easy to understand description of the probate journey in lay mans language.
