Do I need to Instruct a Solicitor?

Although you do not need to instruct a solicitor, where the estate is complex (perhaps there’s inheritance tax to calculate and pay, or perhaps there are trusts arising out of the Will), a specialist firms such as Wrigleys would be best placed to advise you.

Instructing a solicitor also reduces the administrative burden on personal representative, and helps them avoid pitfalls (this could be helping to identify the correct amount of tax, advising on the best way to fund estate liabilities, when to distribute funds  but also how to protect the personal representatives through the process) and also gives peace of mind.
