Do I need a Solicitor in order to apply for Probate?

However, what can appear to be a straight forward estate can turn out to be much more complex. It is therefore worth just speaking to someone to check there is nothing you have missed that may cause additional complexity – especially important as Executors and Administrators are personally responsible for any losses made through errors when administering an estate.
