  • Select Court forms then C1 Confirmation from the dropdown

💁 Note that the C1 form available will be dependent on the date of death of the deceased (pre or post 1 January 2022)

  • Click Generate form
  • You will now see the C1 (including the inventory) is pre-populated with information already entered into your case on the platform 

💡 White fields on the C1 are not editable. This is because they are pre-populated with information entered into your case on the platform 

To edit information in white fields you must go to where you originally entered the data, update the information and save. When you re-open your C1 the information will have automatically updated. For example, if you have misspelt the deceased's name, go back to your Estate overview, click into the deceased's details, update the name with the correct spelling and click Save. Go back and open the C1 to see the correct spelling displayed

💡 Grey fields are editable

  • To edit information in grey fields simply update the information on the form as necessary. Be sure to save as you go by clicking Save & close
