How do you probate without a lawyer?

If you’re dealing with a straightforward estate, you may choose to go through the probate process without a lawyer. First, you’ll need to register the death of the deceased person, and then find out if there is a will. Once you know who the executor of the estate is, they’ll need to apply for a grant and complete an inheritance tax form. You can then apply for probate online or by paper form.
