Be prepared for summer family get-togethers. If you are an Executor of an Estate this means that you can expect to be asked questions by the beneficiaries.
Make sure you know these dates (or possible dates): Notice of intended application for probate; Probate; Notice of intended distribution.
Will there be an interim distribution? There often is so, when will it be likely to happen and when can the final distribution be made?
Arrange a progress report from your solicitor along with a copy of the Estate account or Trust statement. Check if you need an updated one closer to the date of the family gathering.
