DIY Probate. Sanity check.
I am joint executor of my Dad's Will with my two brothers. We all get on very well. I will do most of the work, and do it myself if possible without solicitors.
The will is simple: his estate is left to us three brothers equally. Our mother survives him.
Between them my parents have a £420k house and £340k in ISA/PremBonds etc.
No inheritance tax according to the gov.uk checker
I have applied for probate.
As I understand it, his half of the jointly owned house now passes to my mother. Does she apply to change the Deeds/ Land Registry now? ( my assumption being that this is Law and nothing to do with execution of the will).
So I just need to split their other assets 50/50 and then distribute his half as stated in his will.
The cash is more or less split 50/50 already, my plan is to value their joint physical assets (married so no individual assets) which will be less than £10k, assign those to mum and then make his Cash balance £10k more than hers. That cash is then his estate to be distributed.
How am I doing?
