Delays in Probate Office Dublin – a newsbriefing on Irish Legal issues from Holland Condon

Oct 13, 2014

On 15th September, 2014, the main Probate Office for Ireland, issued the following release =

“Current delays in the Dublin Probate Office

To enable Dublin Probate staff reduce the current 16 week waiting period for a grant of representation to issue in a deceased person’s estate, practitioners are requested to note that the Probate Officer is not in a position to consider applications for expedites from Monday 15th September to Monday 13th October 2014.”

It takes about 4/4.5 months to obtain a Grant of Probate or Grant of Administration from the time we lodge all relevent documents with the Probate Office. There can be a lead in time of up to 4 months to gather all the necessary information.

Grants take about 3 weeks in UK compared to a minimum of 8 months here. What are we doing wrong ??
