Will witnesses questionnaire from HMCTS …..
Anybody come across this? The executor of the will says the delay in getting probate, 30 weeks in total, was because HMCTS sent a questionnaire to the witnesses of the will and the witnesses subsequent delay in responding. The executor tells me there were questions such as "did you witness the will being signed?". He knows this because the witnesses still live next door to them and discussed it with him.
The only issue with witnesses I’ve seen on here has related to them not signing the will correctly. I’ve now seen the will and their signatures are correct and done in the right place. But, for some reason, they’ve also initialled the bottom of the first page in a two page will.
Mind you, there was another two month’s delay in getting anything done as the executor says they weren’t aware probate had been granted until I chased them up. Then, magically copies of the grant of probate were found in a pile of papers at the executor’s house!!!
