Hi, thank you for your question. Once probate can be granted the will becomes a public document which you will be able to access - has probate been granted?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No i am informed that it will not be going to probate as there is not enough in the estate to warrant it

Thank you for confirming. Unfortunately, unless you are an executor, solicitor of the deceased, or beneficiary then it is for the executors to decide whether you can see the will or not.
