2009 estate - which forms to use?

Some guidance please…

Ive been instructed to apply for probate for a gentleman who died in march 2009 - He appointed a firm of solicitors who ceased trading in 2011 following an intervention by the SRA. We have the original Will.

The residuary beneficiaries are happy to step in and act now but my question is do I need to prepare an oath and iht205 as we did back in 2009 or do I need some alternative oath/legal statement?

Most likely a paper application with the relevant 205 for that period of death…you won’t need to do an ‘old style’ Oath.
