Probate Changes at the High Court

As from 4 June 2013, the High Court Rules for Probate applications will change.

All applications for Probate and Letters of Administration are to be filed and all caveats are to be lodged in the Wellington Registry, regardless of the place of residence of the deceased as at date of death. This means that the place of residence of the deceased at date of death will no longer be a relevant matter.

The prescribed forms under which applications are brought have been amended accordingly.
