Sheriff Court Offices - Grant Of Confirmation

Scottish Grant - Sheriff Court Offices:
A grant of confirmation is the legal evidence of a personal representative's authority to deal with the estate of a deceased person whether or not that person died leaving a will (testate) or in the case where no will could be found (intestate). A grant of confirmation will be issued to the personal representative by the Sheriff Court Office following submission of a full inventory on form IHTM05025 of the heritable and moveable estate. They will also have to submit inheritance tax forms IHTM05061 and IHT 200 or IHTM10021 unless the estate is an excepted estate outlined by submission of form IHTM05021.

Sheriff Court Offices & Commisionary Office:
A grant of confirmation is a legal decree of the Sheriff Court Office in Scotland authorising the personal representative to 'uplift, receive, administer and dispose of' the estate' either in accordance with the terms of the will or the intestacy rules where there is no valid will. Application for a grant of confirmation is usually made to the Sheriff Court Office for the district where the deceased last resided or was domiciled however application is made to the Commissary Office, 27 Chambers Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1LB if:

  • the deceased was domiciled in the Edinburgh Sheriff Court District, or
  • the deceased had no fixed or known domicile except that they were domiciled in Scotland, or
  • the deceased was not domiciled in the United Kingdom
