star this property answer text <p>The volume of outstanding probate cases at the Winchester Registry Office on 17 June was as follows: -</p><p> </p><p>Personal Applications</p><ul><li>997 more than 10 days</li><li>250 more than 10 weeks</li></ul><p> </p><p>Solicitors Applications</p><ul><li>3274 more than 10 days</li><li>211 more than 10 weeks</li></ul><p> </p><p>Cases outstanding for more than 10 weeks will include those in which the circumstances are beyond the Probate Service’s control. For example, applicants may be still waiting for their inheritance tax forms from Her Majesty’s Revenue &amp; Customs, or they may not have accounted for all executors named in the will. These requirements must be satisfied before the grant is issued.</p><p> </p><p>Urgent action has been taken to address delays - staffing has been increased and the digital service further improved to reduce the waiting times in order to return performance to normal levels as soon as possible.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There are no prescribed target times for dealing with probate applications. The recent increase in waiting times has been caused by a combination of an increased volume of incoming work and the transition to a new case management IT system. The move to the new system meant that staff had to spend time being trained and familiarising themselves with the system – which also had some initial performance issues that have been addressed.</p><p> </p><p>The change to the new case management system resulted in part from the expansion of the online probate service which was enabled by the 2018 amendments to the non-contentious probate rules. The Explanatory Memorandum for the 2018 Order amending the rules provided an assessment of the impact of the reforms. The memorandum explained that a formal impact assessment was not required as the aggregate impact of the measures was expected to be well below the £5million per annum financial threshold.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There are no statutory requirements or public commitments from Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service in relation to the timeframe for issuing grants of probate. There is a cost to the provision of grants of probate and it is appropriate that this cost is mainly recovered through the application fee, rather than the burden falling to the tax payer.</p> more like this
