Executor's year - How does it affect how long Probate takes?
Solicitors have a stipulation by the law society called the Executor's Year. This gives a solicitor a year in which to execute the instructions under the Will, which they will most likely charge you on an hourly basis. Here at Inheritance Solutions UK we endeavour to administer an estate within half the time it takes most solicitors, which ultimately saves you money. The reason we do this is because we work on fixed fees and so unlike other professional executors, it is within our interest that an estate is dealt with as efficiently as possible.
