Many people assume that your assets will automatically go to a surviving spouse but this is not always the case, which is why it is important to ensure that you have a will in place to avoid any complications. This is particularly true in the case of unmarried partners who have no automatic entitlement.
The role of an executor or administrator can be overwhelming particularly as you are personally liable for administering the estate correctly. The deceased’s estate may involve complex matters or may be of high value. Therefore every executor or administrator can instruct a solicitor of choice to assist them with the estate administration, with the legal fees being settled by the deceased’s estate. Whilst there is no legal requirement to use a Solicitor for Probate, having specialist legal support on hand can be invaluable to guide you through each step of the process.
