TWP - How difficult is it to do probate yourself

Should your clients apply for probate themselves?

Many choose to instruct a professional to apply for probate on their behalf, as it can be a complicated process that involves a lot of paperwork and legal knowledge. However, your clients may wish to obtain a Grant of Probate themselves: it’s important that they are aware of the process and time involved with applying.

Kings Court Trust’s latest blog provides an overview of the probate process and whether your clients should undertake it themselves. The blog answers:

  • When is probate necessary?
  • At what stage do you apply for probate?
  • Can probate be rejected?
  • How much will a professional charge for probate?
