Do I need to use a Solicitor for Probate?
No you do not need to use a Solicitor for Probate and you can manage the process yourself. If there are only cash assets of a lower value, you may decide to deal with the Probate process yourself. In fact, in some cases Probate may not be necessary.
You should check with each bank or building society holding any funds to find out about their own limits for Probate. Some are as low as $5,000 and some as high as $25,000.
