York Probate Registry Probate

York Probate Registry

York probate registry is part of the probate service administrated by HM Courts and Tribunals.  Their main role is to manage and oversee applications made by executors and administrators for a Grant of Representation.  This document allows them to legally act as personal representative of the deceased and carry out their obligations to manage the estate.

Probate documents are public records, overseen and managed by the registry.  If you are concerned about the will, executors or beneficiaries of a deceased relative, it is possible to obtain copies of all probate documents. You may wish to find out if probate has been granted and who is acting as representative.  If no application has been made you can enter in a standing search so you'll be notified when it is eventually submitted.

The registry cannot help with the following:

  • Valuing an estate
  • Inheritance tax advice
  • Legal advice in relation to intestacy law
  • Altering a will or intestacy
  • Contesting a will or probate
  • Legal help with disputes
  • Dealing with the estate after the grant has been issued
