I want to contest a Will, how can I stop probate?
If you want to stop probate, you can place something called a ‘caveat’ against the estate, which will stop probate being applied for, until any dispute is finalised.
The cost of applying for this with the Court is £3.00, but it is always recommended to consult a local solicitor before making this application, as you will need to try and resolve matters within six months, before the caveat ends (although, you can usually apply to enter another caveat).
As usual, if you have any questions or queries, and need the best legal advice, then please do not hesitate to contact your local office. We have offices, in Lancaster, Longridge, and Garstang, and home visits are available, upon request.
