Can I do probate myself in the UK?

Probate grants you the legal right to manage someone else’s estate when they pass away. If a will has been left then the executor will need to apply for a grant of probate. If there is no will then the next of kin will need to apply for a grant of letters of administration. If you’re not dealing with a complex estate, it may be cheaper and more efficient to apply for probate yourself.
