    If you’re ordering a PDF surely it’s instant?

    If it's recent it's usually within 48 hours. Historic ones are slower. When you order it gives you an estimated delivery date.

    One I ordered (probate a few months old) took just a few days 
    If you are querying your Council Tax band would you please state whether you are in England, Scotland or Wales

    I thought it would be instant, its not.
    It doesn't really say anywhere.

    I've had to order a couple recently. One came back the same day and the other took about three days.

    Anything up to 2 weeks for the most recent batch of historic wills I requested.
