1. How can I prevent a Grant of Probate being issued?
You can prevent either a grant of probate or grant of administration by lodging a caveat at the Probate Registry. For more information, see Caveats, warnings and appearances.
2. How can I find out when a Grant of Probate has been issued?
You can find out when a Grant of Probate or Grant of Administration (also known as a Grant of Letters of Administration) has been obtained by lodging a "standing search" at the Probate Registry. The standing search stays in place for 6 months and can be renewed on expiry.
