There are a number of pitfalls when completing the Probate process yourself, some of which are:
Whilst we suggest employing a Professional for probate purposes, we always recommend you appoint a friend or family member you trust as Executor for your Will. This means your Executors will be able to employ their chosen Professional at a rate they agree, rather than being tied to working with a company at what is usually a much higher rate.
Considering current government guidelines regarding isolation, staying at home and social distancing, executing a Will or POA may be more of a challenge than usual. Wills & POAs cannot be signed or witnessed electronically or via webcam.
