Quiet times, can they last?
Here at Probaters we have noticed that transactions have been dealt with at breakneck speed by both the Land Registry and our local Probate Registry. Early in December we took instructions for a probate and obtained the grant by the end of the month and had the property transferred to trustees in the first week of January! I fear that the state of the property market might mean that we see Land Registry staff with time on their hands for quick turnarounds. Unfortunately the state of the NHS and the flu epidemic does not augur quite so well for leisure at the Probate Registries.
