Probate Searches

We are carrying out Probate Searches, bespeak Will`s and Grants/Letters of Administrations in the General Probate Office. Although, these requests are taking longer than usual to process given the limited capacity of the Probate office at the moment. This can also be dependent on the urgency of the particular request.

Probate Rules Office

We are filing Caveats and other submissions into the Probate Rules Office. These submissions are taking longer than usual to be processed and issued by the Probate Office’s capacity. All caveats which might affect the issue of a Grant or Letters of Administration should be filed before close of business next Tuesday the 14th April if they are to effect the issue of any Grants which will issue from next Thursday the 16th April.
