Wondering if the DIY Probate Pack really works? Here’s proof!

“When you’ve just lost somebody like we have, it’s hard to concentrate on things like Probate, reading wills and going through loved ones belongings and house etc.

When we saw Phil Weston’s probate pack advert online we decided to order it and take a look at it.

We’ve never looked back.

It’s a good step by step guide of what to do and full of information. You can even tick off boxes of lists on what to do as you go along.

You can book an appointment through his team to speak to him personally or send him an email, which he answers promptly. He is always friendly and offers good advice to help you through obtaining probate.

We received the Probate on Xmas Eve which was the best Xmas present! It seemed to come through in no time at all considering how long these things usually take. We would highly recommend investing in this pack and Phil’s help.

We used to carry his pack around with us and go to a cafe to read through it.

Thanks Phil for making this time more bearable from Geoff and Penny, Wotton-under-Edge.

We would have given in 10 stars if it was possible!”

Phil Weston DIY Probate Packs

Please allow me to introduce myself.

My name is Philip Weston & I’m the DIY Probate Expert, founder and owner of Berkeley Weston Ltd Legal Services. In the last 12 months I have helped 3,615 consumers carry out a DIY Probate – and by doing so saved them an estimated £10,122,000 in legal fees. That’s over £10 MILLION that has been inherited by family members rather than ending up in the hands of fat cat lawyer.

May I share a legal industry “secret” I’ve discovered during my 21 years helping consumers just like you?

The vast majority of people can carry out a “DIY” probate themselves without a solicitor, but don’t know how.

My aim is to pass on my know-how so that you can deal with probate yourself quickly, easily and confidently, without having to go “cap in hand” to an expensive solicitor.

If you’re faced with wrapping up the affairs of a loved one who has died, you may feel overwhelmed by all the work ahead – especially when you’re grieving. But with the right legal and practical information and support, You CAN do it yourself.

Did you know?

Most people deal with probate themselves rather than use a solicitor.

Official figures revealed recently by HM Courts Service showed that the majority of probate applications came from individuals doing a “DIY” probate themselves, with only a minority of people now choosing to use a solicitor. The figures also revealed that the number of people using a solicitor to obtain probate have slumped by over 30% in the past 5 years.

This “inside information” is not widely publicised. It is in the interest of the legal profession to have you believe that you must use a solicitor or probate company to obtain probate – the truth of the matter is that most people deal with probate themselves without using a solicitor.

Hi Phil. I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say ‘Thank you’!


When my 85 year old Mum passed away, I knew, as sole executor, I was faced with the task of dealing with her estate and obtaining probate, and had no idea where to begin.


After some intense googling, I came across your website and sent off for your DIY probate pack. It was the best investment ever. Once I started to read it, the fog lifted and I got stuck into the mountain of probate forms.


I also used the HMRC website for guidance too, but between that and your DIY pack, the process was straightforward. I had no idea, that I could also fill in a simple form and use my Dads unused inheritance tax threshold too (he passed away 23 years ago).


I sent the probate forms off on 15th October……received an acknowledgement from the Probate office two weeks later….received confirmation that it had been approved a couple of days after that……and received the actual probate document two days after that. I had the Probate document in my hands three weeks after sending it off, which was within 8 weeks of my Mum passing away.


My Mum’s estate was fairly straightforward, although there is property involved, but if I can do it, pretty sure anyone can. It really is just matter of having all the information to hand.


Thank you again.


Kind regards


Denise Williams

Avoiding Probate Headaches

I understand that facing probate can be a daunting and frustrating experience at a very stressful and emotional time.

After losing someone close to us most people feel a personal sense of duty to carry out the final wishes of their loved one without having to get a solicitor involved. After all, choosing someone to carry out our final wishes involves a great deal of thought to make sure the right person is chosen.

You may not know how to go about dealing with probate and have unanswered questions, such as:

Other than going to somewhere such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, there is very little support and help available for the majority of people who want to deal with probate themselves.

Out of sheer frustration, this can lead some people into the welcoming arms of a solicitor or probate company, who will charge them a fortune for dealing with probate.

Have you thought about what you stand to lose by handing probate over to a solicitor or probate company?

There Is A Simpler And Better Probate Solution:

What most people don’t realise is that obtaining probate is extremely easy to do. I know, because I have been helping members of the public obtain probate for over 21 years!
In that time, I’ve developed a foolproof, proven way for ordinary members of the public to obtain probate themselves quickly and easily, which means they can carry out the final wishes of a loved one without having to go cap in hand to an expensive solicitor.

How To Apply For Probate Yourself

Get Your DIY Probate Pack Now For Only £29

Bought this pack back in August and it is all very clear. The follow up emails then remind you of bits to do and act as a check and balance. Had a couple of questions, during the process, which Phil answered via email. Everything went smoothly with all of the forms being sent off at the end of November. Waited until 1 Mar 21 and with nothing heard I rand the Probate Office only to be told there was a problem. When I enquired what it was they didn’t know. Rang back yesterday to be given more information which seemed odd and there was no record of the previous day’s call.

Emailed Phil with the scenario last night and he came straight back with what questions to ask the Probate Office and to ask what their corrective action plan was as they had not made contact and this should not be just sat on someone’s desk.

Rang back today and asked all these questions, asked if all their calls were recorded I wanted then to undertake an investigation s to why there was no record of my phone call on Monday and asked what their plan of action was to sort this out as it had been 12 weeks and all the paperwork was in order.

Insisted that the shift supervisor rang me back to inform me what was happening.

Miraculously within 2 hours they formally approved the Probate request.

Thank you Phil for the expert advice last night as without that I would not have known the right buttons to press on the phone conversation and would not have had such a speedy resolution.

I would recommend this Probate pack to anyone who has the confidence to do a straightforward application themselves. The benefit is that he doesn’t just sell you the pack and then leave you too it he provides follow up advice as and when you need it.

Maggs Harris

  • If you are the executor of a Will or the next of kin and need probate, this will work for you.

  • If you don’t want to waste thousands of pounds on unnecessary legal fees for something you can do yourself, this is for you.

Please Note: my DIY Probate Pack is NOT designed to be the answer for complicated estates, for example:

  • If there is a complicated trust involved
  • If the estate is very large in value and there is a prospect of reducing a sizeable inheritance tax liability
  • If there is a dispute or the prospect of a claim against the estate
  • If the deceased owned a business
  • If the estate is insolvent

If any of these circumstances apply my DIY Probate Pack isn’t for you – please seek alternative legal advice instead.

Richard Cole Diy Probate customer

“I purchased the pack on 2 February and would like to thank you for putting together such an excellent product. The clarity of the guidance is superb, the tips are invaluable and the sample letters fit the bill perfectly for a complete novice such as myself. The links provided were also of considerable assistance, particularly those for the on-line Probate and IHT forms which can be typed and then printed, the latter doing its own calculations as you go along.
Your product really does represent incredible value for money, with the saving of many, many thousands of pounds by comparison with the likely charges made by banks and solicitors.
I am extremely grateful, many thanks to you.”
