DIY probate - what do they ask you at the interview at the Probate Registry

My friend is doing the probate on her late father's estate herself. He died intestate, she is his only relative and it is a small value estate.

She has got to the point where she is about to file the papers with the Probate Office but is quite nervous about being called in to have the interview with them and I wondered if anyone knew what exactly they were likely to ask her. She knows that she has to swear some kind of an oath { oath for administration ?} but not much more about what to expect.

Does anyone have any experience of this ?

The probate service website is really helpful, and explains what your friend will be asked at the interview, and the next steps.
My brother is in the process of doing the same thing, and he says they've been great.

all they do is ask you if its all true what you have put in the forms and prove identity its normally at the council or registrary offices
