The Government has announced that copies of wills and grants of probate can be obtained online or by post. Each record of probate will cost £10.
It is intended that new grants of probate will be available online within 14 days of issue and postal enquiries will be dealt with within four weeks.
You can also apply for a 'standing search' to advise if a grant of representation is issued within the next six months. This costs £10 and a copy of the will and the grant will be provided.
Further details can be found on the Government's website.
