Wills and probate

izaiza Member Posts: 471 Pioneering
Hi everyone, is here perhaps somebody who knows law very well and could advise me personally via message on procedures regarding will and probate when relative from family passed away? I have 3 questions to ask  to make sure I understand everything correctly.  Please let me know and I will send my questions directly. Thanks Iza

    Personally, i think you'll be much better off speaking to an advice centre near you, for expert advice regarding this.

    Hello iza  
    Probate can take some time you need to check that you have all the paper work As you will need this you may get any payment back that you made for your probate .
    Good luck it can take up to 3months .

    @littlechef, thank you but I am not the souls executrix, someone else is. So I would need to find out what to do once the person gets rights to probate and all steps I should take after that. How does it all look from law point of view?
