Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I a a solicitor in Scotland. Thank you for your question. In Scotland you don’t have probate. The executor of the will applies for Confirmation at the sheriff court local to where the deceased lived. In most cases the forms used are forms C1 and C5 which are freely available online. You can either instruct a local solicitor to apply for Confirmation or you can do it yourself by carefully following the guidance notes on how to do so. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited by JustAnswer for helping you today.
