For the purposes of the civil procedure rules (CPR),1 a probate claim is defined as a claim for:

‘(i)the grant of probate of the will, or letters of administration of the estate, of a deceased person;

(ii)the revocation of such a grant; or

(iii)a decree pronouncing for or against the validity of an alleged will;

not being a claim which is non-contentious (or common form) probate business.’2

In that definition, a ‘will’ includes a codicil3 and a claim includes a counter-claim.4
