The first stage involves our lawyers reviewing a copy of the deceased’s Death Certificate and Will (if there is one) and your completed Questionnaire. Once our review is complete, we attend to all legally required advertising and notifications.
We draft your application for a grant and send this to you via post for signing and return to us. Typically you will have your application within (7) – (10) days from the time we receive your completed Questionaire and a copy of the Death Certificate and Will.
Once we have received your signed application for a grant, we then lodge this with the Court. The application is usually dealt without the need to appear in Court. The Court typically take between (4 ) – (6) weeks to process your application. Timing depends on how busy the Court is at the time your application is lodged.
Once your grant has been received by our firm from the Court, we notify you that we can now legally deal with the deceased’s assets and finalise the estate.
