I don't want any contact with them at all .
Even beneficiaries of a will have no right to see the will although it can be obtained from the probate registry for a fee of £10 once it’s been admitted to probate.
Here is the link to enable you to search online.
if it has not been admitted to probate because the value of the estate is under £20,000 and it being dealt with under the smaller state rules, there is no way you can get a copy of the will without a court order.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Thank you it is over the threshold amount and not in probate yet, do'es the executive have a time lymit to enter the will?
They have to act in the best interest of the beneficiaries which means not duly delay but having said that it’s not uncommon for a probate application to take at least 6 months to go through and it can take 12 months or even longer for the estate to be distributed
Thank you so one should check with the probate say after six months then monthly afterwards, cheers.
