All probate lawyers will tell you how much harder their job currently is with the long delays from HMRC and the Probate Registries. 

There has been a clash between HM Courts & Tribunals and the Law Society Committee after solicitors were blamed for the delays due to incorrect or incomplete applications. Whilst this could be the situation in some cases, it does not count for all. It fails to report that emails and calls are unanswered by the Probate Registries, nor does it mention the number of Grants that have been sent out with incorrect information. 

In my opinion pointing fingers does not help. It does nothing to alleviate the situation, and not reporting the actual situation is not assisting anyone.
