Probate - Coronavirus Update
Probate can be a very emotional and complicated process at the best of times but now in particular we know you need that extra support and guidance. To help get you through the next few months we have adapted our service and can now offer the initial appointment over the telephone from the comfort of your home.
The majority of the Probate team are now working successfully from home, with full access to the systems they need, so minimal disruption to our service is anticipated. Our main switchboard will continue to operate as normal and the vast majority of our normal administrative functions will still operate.
We have been in touch with our local Registry Office who have confirmed that because they are classed as key workers, they will continue to remain open to register deaths. This will allow us to then progress your matter as normal.
We are however anticipating delays with the turnaround at the probate registry as things progress, but we will keep you updated as we know more.
