    Just a quick question.


    If you use a solicitor to apply for probate does the probate office send the grant back to the solicitor or direct to the person named on the grant?


    Thanks.

    Normally to the solicitor, unless you or they asked them to send it elsewhere.

    I used a solicitor, upon completion of probate, my solicitor sent it to me as the named executor. Hope this helps.
