About the Webinar

You have the records of a client who has died, including reference to a will that the firm made for him/her some years previously. However, when you open the deeds packet there is no sign of the will - there is a photocopy of one. Is this of the last will he/she made?

Other scenarios:

• The will was located on the death of the will-maker but it has since been lost or destroyed
• The will-maker changed firms in their life and all documents/deeds were sent by their previous firm to your firm
• The will-maker at some stage in their life uplifts their will. There will be a record on the file of this and the will-maker will have signed an acknowledgement for having received their will. Yeah right!

These are just a few scenarios, but the key point is that the will is not where it ought to be.

Having attended this webinar participants will be able to:

• identify to what steps they need to take to prepare an application for a grant of probate of a lost will;
• predict what evidence they need to assemble for such an application to succeed;
• Prepare a rebuttal of the presumption of revocation when this is necessary.

Who should attend?

This webinar is for persons who are directly involved in: dealing with clients; taking instructions for the preparation of wills; and the preparation of applications for probate (with supporting documentation). It will be particularly relevant to solicitors, estate administrators and legal executives.
