Nearly every executor wants to know how long probate will take. The process shouldn’t take more than 2 or 3 months in most cases; but it can take much, much longer. One of the reasons for this is that there is a tendency for the process to become totally reactive. You need to get some information from, for example, a bank. The bank doesn’t answer, and then it is weeks before the solicitor realises that there has been no reply. That happens a few times, and the accumulated delay creates a great deal of frustration and irritation as far as his or her client is concerned.

At Probaters.com we identify with the client’s interest and adopt a proactive approach to get the probate as soon as possible. The client is happy, and so are we – on a fixed fee it makes no sense to allow delays to build up. At the end of every case each client is asked to rate our service, and to suggest any ways in which the client thought delays could have been cut. We are committed to continuously improving our service.
