  • Obtain the Probate and official copies of this to you. The Court fee for the grant is £300 and the cost of copies of the Grant is £1.50 per copy

On average, obtaining a Grant of Representation in this way for you can be dealt with within 5 months. Typically, obtaining the Grant of Probate takes 16 weeks. Once the Grant of Probate has been obtained, you will be able to produce this to the relevant asset holders to enable you to collect in the funds and repay the liabilities of the estate and distribute the balance between the beneficiaries.
