    Re: Warning appearance

    Sooo frustrating, playing guessing games! When did your solicitor send the docs in response to the LvN request?
    It may be the solicitor is just considering them to advise her, or they have sent their advice and are just waiting for instructions.
    Claims can be ridiculously expensive, particularly if you are dealing with someone who basically want's their 'day in Court' so doesn't necessarily get a wiggle on with things that need to be done. I would say minimum 5,000 but considerably more (into 10's of 1,000) if things drag on. It will depend on the arguments raised and whether other evidence is required.
    As we mentioned previously undue influence claims are notoriously difficult to prove.
    Lets hope her solicitor is sensible. They shouldn't be encouraging a claim that has no merit!
    I am a qualified solicitor and am happy to try and assist informally, where needed.

      We sent our lark v nugus response on 24th April!! I should think they've had time to consider or take instruction.

        Unfortunately her solicitor can't do anything until they have instructions and from what you say she may not be proactive with this. It may be sensible for your solicitor to contact her solicitor and ask for their response by a certain date after which state that you'll issue proceedings? It may prompt a response that gives you an indication of why there is the delay.

          Hi. I am a potential buyer of a probate property
          the sellers have already submitted an application to the court on 1st May 2019. Any update on current turnaround times to issue a grant ? This is the 6th week and no news. We are worried and thinking of pulling out of the sale. Any advice?

            On average, in England or Wales, it takes around three to six months to obtain a Grant of Probate, although it can take longer for more complex Estates.

            If you want to post further on this matter please start your own thread and not hi jack an old one.
            You are more likely to get responses that way
