Elderly couple own property as tenants in common. Other assets are in joint and sole accounts. Assuming they do not keep more than allowed by individual bank e.g Nationwide is £30,000, Barclays £50,000 and if they keep to that amount in their sole account, am I right to think probate is not necessary. Premiums bonds is 5k. Land registry does not need probate to update registry, the surviving spouse can do that. Have I missed anything? As probate fees are going up and funerals are not cheap I need to consider putting my financial affairs in order. Thanks
