The last time I spoke to the solicitor was a month ago. She said that she was still waiting for the Nat West bank to reply and then would go to probate. I have rang Nat West today and they told me they had sent the information in January. I'm unhappy with the lack of communication from my solicitor, she does not ring me back and there has been no correspondence. I was told last month I would receive a letter with an update but have heard nothing to date. It is now 6 months since I took the bank details and death certificate into her office. Is this normal waiting time?
