Hi, thanks for your question. No, this is not the solicitor's responsibility. Legally it is the recipient's responsibility to inform the relevant benefit agencies of a change of circumstances which will include inheritance.Please provide a positive rating if you found this information helpful. I will not be credited with answering this question without a positive rating. Thank you
