There are a lot of things to think about when someone dies. Some are obvious, some are less so but many can be forgotten when you’re dealing with a bereavement.
It might sound like quite a basic thing but, as executor, you need to check the will for any gifts of specific items at an early stage.
You don’t want to be ringing up the house clearance firm to ask where those vases the deceased left to “my dear nephew Stephen” are. Even worse if the will says “my blue ming vases to my dear nephew Stephen”.
It’s these little things which can make a probate solicitor a good investment.
