In June 2020, the Law Society and several organisations collaborated with HM Courts & Tribunals Service (HMCTS) to produce a new resource to support legal professionals using the probate service.

The document covers frequently asked questions relating to:

  • online applications
  • paper applications
  • inheritance tax queries
  • signature guidance.

We’ve collectively worked with:

  • HMCTS
  • the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP)
  • Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE)
  • the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
