How long should probate take? Person died in November, still no news on probate, although should be straight forward as beneficiaries are also executor. Paperwork filled in together. No inheritance tax to pay. Is this normal or could there be a problem. Thanks

Who the beneficiaries are shouldn't affect either of these - except to the extent that an Executor might feel motivated to work faster if they are also a beneficiary.
That is from sending in the paperwork & relates to a simple estate.
