Both citations and caveats under the Non-contentious Probate Rules are very useful tools in succession law, being fundamental both to the Court’s ability to control the Probate Court and an individual’s ability to progress or prevent a Grant of Probate. However, both are also in many cases underutilised and not properly applied when used.

This seminar sheds light on this little known but important area of practice and will deal with the purposes, mechanisms for application, and consequences (both costs and otherwise) of both citations and caveats.

This seminar is highly recommended for all wills and estate practitioners.
