I am the executor of a will of someody who is about to die. I had a bad experience with a solicitor when I sold my flat so I am seriously considering carrying out the probate myself. There is only one beneficiary of the will and the only assets are a house and some savings accounts. The only debtors will be utility companies. I know this because I have been managing their affairs for the past three years. There seems to be plenty of online advice about this, e.g: https://probate.which.co.uk/how-probate-works/diy-probate/#DIY Does anybody have any experience of carrying out probate themselves ?
