Estate Administration – DIY Or Use Solicitors?

Estate Administration - DIY Or Use SolicitorsBefore you deal with the estate administration, think carefully about whether you want to deal with this yourself, or whether you instruct a firm of Solicitors to take the stress away for you.

At an early stage it is useful to consider if you do actually want to take on personal responsibility (including the hassle, stress and time involved) in dealing with the administration of the deceased’s estate yourself, or alternatively whether you might prefer instructing a firm of solicitors to sort it all out for you (and therefore avoid any hassle stress and time consuming work.

Hassle Vs Cost

Often there are all sorts of other matters going on following the death of a loved one, not least coming to terms with the death and going through the bereavement process.  It often boils down to whether you and your family want to expose yourself to potential stress, hassle and time that needs to be spent that can go with sorting out the administration of a loved one’s estate yourselves?  Alternatively, whether you and your family might instead prefer for a firm of solicitors to sort everything out for you, you have peace of mind knowing all the estate administration work is done for you both quickly, correctly (and without the stress and hassle) but of course incur some (relatively low) legal costs.
