Wouldn't it just be simpler for my friend to hire a solicitor to deal with all of this? What is the point of getting a rather dim layman who lives several hundred miles away involved?
A solicitor always acts as an agent never as a principal, meaning he has got to take instructions from someone and no offence to your friend, but since dead men can't take.....

BTW this is almost always the way with a solicitor: they act as a agent and ultimately are never responsible for the actions of a client <g>, nice way to make your money.............
