Probate is the act of applying for the right to deal with a deceased person’s affairs.
If a person dies leaving a Will, one or more ‘executors’ may be named in the Will to deal with their affairs. Executors can apply for a ‘grant of probate’ from a division of the court known as the probate registry. The grant is a legal document which confirms that the executor has the authority to deal with the deceased person’s assets (property, money and other possessions).
If a person dies without leaving a Will (known as Intestate), a close relative or solicitor can apply to the probate registry for a ‘grant of letters of administration’. Like the grant of probate, this is a legal document which confirms the administrator’s authority to deal with the deceased person’s assets.
