Frequently Asked Questions about Probate Services

What is Probate?  Probate is the process of dealing with the estate of someone who has died which generally means paying off their debts and distributing the estate in accordance with their Will.  This can include assets such as their property, money and other possessions. Probate needs to be obtained prior to the Will Executors claiming or selling the assets and this can be granted through a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration.

What is a Grant of Probate?  This is a type of grant of representation obtained from the Court. A Grant of Probate confirms the legal authority given to an executor of a deceased’s Will, to act in the administration of the estate. The grant allows the executor to deal with the assets in a deceased’s estate, for example, to close bank accounts, sell the property and pay debts and expenses. The grant also proves the validity of the Will.

What are Letters of Administration?  A grant of letters of administration may be required if your loved one died without leaving a Will. It is the official Court document that proves you have the authority to deal with someone’s estate. Once the document has been issued, you’ll be able to act as the administrator of the estate.
