Probate

 

When someone dies leaving a Will it is very often necessary to obtain something called Probate to deal with their affairs. The Grant of Probate gives authority on behalf of the deceased to deal with, for example, Banks and Building Societies. The assets of the deceased are collected and then paid out in accordance with the terms of the Will.

 

We are appointed by the executors of the estate to assist them with the various procedures and documentation to deal with the deceased’s estate.

Administration

 

When someone does not leave a Will then their next of kin have to obtain something called Letters of Administration from the Court to deal with the affairs of the estate. Those appointed (Administrators) deal with, for example, Banks and Building Societies collecting in money, they will often sell property and then divide up the estate in accordance with certain statutory laws.  

 

We are appointed by the Administrators of the estate to assist them with the various procedures and documentation to deal with the deceased’s estate.
