Probate application form (PA1A and PA1P)

When a person dies leaving behind an estate, which can include a house or a flat, as well as money, shares and personal possessions, you'll usually need to apply to the Probate Registry to get a Grant of Representation before you can deal with the assets of the deceased's estate. This means that you can't, for example, sell their house or get money from bank accounts until a grant has been issued.

If an Inheritance Tax account/return is required, you'll need to complete this before completing this form, as certain of the figures will need to be copied from the tax account/return to this form. If an Inheritance Tax account/return is not required, you'll still need to include in this form certain values for the estate of the person who has died. You can get these by using HMRC's Inheritance Tax checker.

Use this product to apply for the grant. It includes forms PA1A and PA1P; it will select the correct form for you according to your circumstances. Note that you can only use this to make an application for a grant in England or Wales.
Compatible region(s): England & Wales
