How long does Probate take


How long does Probate take?

It can be a lengthy process, taking up to a year, perhaps longer if things are not straightforward. Many different organisations could be involved, such as banks, building societies, insurance companies and HM Revenue & Customs, as well as individuals who might claim against the deceased's estate.

If there is more than one personal representative they must work together to decide matters between them. Disagreements can cause expensive delays.
