Contentious probate

Novitas loans can cover the legal costs of contentious probate proceedings.

Novitas Loans has ceased lending to new customers who require probate litigation funding. 

We will continue to focus on managing existing cases in the best interests of our customers and to process drawdowns against existing loan facilities. We will also continue to consider applications for extension funding. Any loan applications where an offer has not been made will unfortunately not be progressed any further.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and support through this transitional period. Should you wish to discuss this further, please contact us on 0333 321 6070.

Fast, efficient lending

Our loans are set up as a facility for solicitors to draw down funds to pay legal bills, as and when your client needs to. For contentious probate cases, we’ll need Counsel's opinion before approving your client’s application (pro-forma available upon application).

  • Clear, simple lending criteria and rapid lending decision
  • Pre-approved funding – you and your client know exactly how much is available
  • Loan is available to use at any point in the proceedings
