Filling Out Your Probate Forms - Affidavit of delivery (form P9)

Affidavit of delivery (form P9)

Why do I need to complete this form?

This form confirms that you’ve delivered notice of the application to everyone required under the law.

Can I file more than one form P9?

Yes, you can file one or more affidavits of delivery. The forms will collectively confirm that you’ve given notice to everyone you were required to tell about the application. 

Why is it important to indicate that I’ve delivered notice to the Public Guardian and Trustee (if required)?

If the rules say you must deliver notice to the Public Guardian and Trustee, you must say that you’ve done so on the form P9. This tells the probate registry that they must wait for the Public Guardian and Trustee’s comments on your application before the registry issues a grant.
