The Probate Office is part of the High Court. Its main function is to give lawful authority to deal with a deceased person's estate. The authority is granted in the form of a document called a Grant of Representation and the procedure involved in obtaining the Grant is known as the Probate Process.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current Level 5 Covid restrictions, Probate Personal Applicant appointments have been suspended until further notice.
If you require the Grant of Probate/Administration urgently, you may wish to consider instructing a solicitor to lodge the application on your behalf. You must withdraw your personal application if instructing a solicitor. The Probate Office will endeavour to issue the grant as a matter of urgency if the application is lodged by this means.
