Thank you for clarifying that for me.
Did you jointly own the property with your mother as joint tenants?

Hello
Thank you for clarifying that for me.
If you mother assets had already been dealt with then you might not need to apply for probate.
Probate allows an estate to be dealt with. For example if the property hadn't already been previously transferred to you then a Grant of Probate would be required to allow this to happen.
Its therefore likely that Probate did not need to be applied for in your case.
If you are unsure then its best to speak with the Solicitor so that they can confirm this is the case.
Please do not hesitate to ask if I can assist you further.
Kind Regards
Caroline
