We are discovering that what seems to be 100% of our (relevant) applications are being held up by the Probate Registry not receiving the IHT421 which HMRC claim to have already sent. Once HMRC are contacted directly they resend the IHT421 and the grant will be issued shortly afterwards.
Is anyone/everyone else finding this too? Or, are we just unlucky?
In good news, however, we are receiving simple applications back within 3-4 weeks now (still waiting for some from March though)
