Hello, welcome to the website. My name isXXXXX can assist you with this.
Has probate actually been granted in this case?
Do you want to be an executor?
Do you wish to enter the chat with me about this?
And you would like to see a copy of the will?
Yes, it's possible.
Here is a link, telling you what form to use (Form PA1), and linking you to a copy of it. Then it gives you the address of the Probate Registry to write to in order to obtain a copy of the will. http://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/probate/copies-of-grants-wills
Not to obtain the will no, it's pretty easy to do, as the will is now a public document.
When probate has been granted it becomes public, not when administration is complete.
Yes, they are. The executors become responsible for dealing with the estate and administering everything in connection with it.
Thank you! Is there anything else you would like to know?
Yes, it's possible to contest the will.
A useful site is here: http://www.savvywoman.co.uk/c6-pages/c6s6.php?art_id=326
This gives some guidance as to who (and in what time limits) can challenge a will.
Thank you too. Have a good evening.
