Privacy and probate

Privacy and probate

Andrew Reay, probate manager at Harbottle & Lewis LLP, explains to a Financial Times reader how they can maintain a degree of privacy, as regards their testamentary wishes, on their death.

Andrew first considers the rarely-exercised power of the Probate Registry to “seal” a Will (which would prevent it from being published), and then some alternative arrangements the testator could make in their Will in order to keep the devolution of their Estate as private as possible.
