Grants of probate

Once an individual passes away, in order to deal with their estate, the personal representatives of the deceased must obtain a grant of probate.

Birmingham has a district probate registry. This registry will hear all probate applications and will be responsible for deciding whether or not to grant probate to the applicants.

The application for probate is likely to fail if the applicants cannot prove that the deceased had a valid will.

The address of the probate district registry in Birmingham is The Priory Courts, 33 Bull Street Birmingham, West Midlands, England B4 6DU.

If you require assistance with applying for probate, you should seek advice from a law firm who specialises in wills and probate.
