The Probate Office has introduced changes intended to bring a degree of clarity to probate procedures for practitioners and to increase the efficiency of the Probate Office. These new rules will reduce the likelihood of papers being queried and are intended to make the system more legally robust and relevant.

In response to these developments, Practical Probate has been specially formulated to represent a concise collection of essential principles on probate practice, written in the style of the late Eamonn G. Mongeys Probate Practice in a Nutshell.

This text presents the reader with a practical approach to the issues that practitioners face on a day-to-day basis, and provides a succinct road map, setting out the steps that need to be taken in probate practice in a straightforward and clear manner. It focuses on the core issues surrounding probate practice; in particular: the validity of wills, inheritance rights, and the extraction of grants.




* Consolidated statutory, regulatory and customary practices and procedures.

* Helpful precedent wills, oaths and other essential documentation.

* A series of helpful checklists, which assist the practitioner in identifying the correct procedure.

* Presents the nuts and bolts of probate practice and procedure in an easy-to-interpret format.
