I am currently dealing with a matter where a Sole Executrix (A) had lost mental capacity and therefore was not able to take the Grant. Her son had already made an application for a Deputyship order with the CoP and therefore he and his brother made the application for the grant as the executors named if she was unable or unwilling to act.
For some reason, my colleague submitted the application before the deputyship order was granted by the CoP and unfortunately we are now in a situation where A has passed away before the order was made.
I now find myself in a situation where the application for the GoP is still with the Court, and they are awaiting sight of the Deputyship order. The opinion here seems to be that we need to reapply for LoA with the Will annexed to take account of A dying after the deceased, however, we are also assuming that we will need to apply to revoke the application for the Grant that is with the Court currently? I cannot however find a revocation that appears to suit the situation.
I have tried calling the Court/emailing and writing to them over a significant period of time and so I thought I would pick your brains for thoughts… any help will be greatly appreciated! TIA
