Thank you for your speedy reply. Registers of Scotland have carried out a 'Deed Name' search on the Judicial Registers but were unable to find an entry for Kate's will. If there is no entry on that register does that mean the will is not available to view or is there another way of getting a copy please?
Additionally, if Kate had made provision for my sister and I in her will, but the executor had stated he had been unable to trace us, would the will be registered somewhere showing there are benefactors outstanding please?
I would like you to try and find a professional in this area of Scottish law please.
I have not receiveupdate communication. Are you still looking for a professional? If so, how long should I expect to wait please?
Thank you for your response which was really helpful. Kate's last known address was a 'care of' address in Hamilton but she died in Hairmeyes Hospital, East Kilbride. I have already been in contact with the Sheriff Court in Hamilton who used a system called CODA (not sure if that's the correct lettering) and could not find an entry for her. Her house was in Glasgow.
Which district would you expect the Confirmation and will to be in please?
i will be leaving a very positive rating - thank you so much for your continued help.
