star this property answer text <p>Official statistics are not published on the average length of time from receipt of the application to the issue of a grant of probate. Internal management information, which is not subject to the rigorous quality assurance processes of official statistics, has been used to show the following average time from receipt of an application to a grant being issued:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Quarter </strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Average weeks to grant issued</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>July 2018 to September 2018</p></td><td><p>3</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>October 2018 to December 2018</p></td><td><p>3</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>January 2019 to March 2019</p></td><td><p>2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p>April 2019 to June 2019</p></td><td><p>6</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>These figures do not include cases which are waiting for a grant to be issued. The data from April to June 2019 has been extracted from the HMCTS Reform Core Case Data system, which is a new system in active development, and may not be directly comparable with figures for earlier periods. All figures, especially those for April 2019 to June 2019, are provisional and subject to revision.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Some grants are experiencing delays of between four and six weeks outside of our targets as a result of significant increases in work during March and April and some IT issues which have now been resolved. We have recruited more staff and are now issuing in excess of 1,000 grants a day that is bringing waiting times down further.</p>
