Notice from Probate Registry

In an effort to minimise the risks associated with COVID-19, the Probate registry is requesting that firms no longer deliver documents personally to the Registry.

The Probate Registry is now only accepting documents by mail or DX. All documents will be returned by mail or DX.

To speed the return of the Grant of Probate, the Probate Registry recommends that firms make payment of the filing fee when lodging the probate documents. If this payment is not being made by cheque but by EFT, please ensure a copy of the remittance and confirmation receipt is sent together with the application or is sent by email to the Probate Registry with clear identification as to the estate name and/or tax invoice number.

If you wish to make payment by EFTPOS (credit card), a telephone call can be made to the Probate registry for the confidential transfer of card details.

Should any issue arise from this direction, please email our office directly.
