Sadly my father passed away recently (my mother has already passed) and as I am an only child I am executor of the will. The property is left to myself, I have already informed all relevant people (banks, utility bills etc etc ) of his passing. My question is regarding probate do I need a solicitor to carry this out or would it be simple to do myself. The property I just want transferred into my name as I am not planning on selling it yet can anyone give me some advice and where to start thank you in advance. I did read a post about valuation for tax purposes am I correct in saying as its left to me (his daughter) the valuation of everything can be as much as £500k before tax inc contents of the house etc or am in wrong?
