Probate and Letters of Administration

Where a person dies leaving a will, the Court must validate the will prior to the named executors being able to deal with the assets (and liabilities) of the estate or making distributions to beneficiaries. A grant of probate is a legal document issued by the Court confirming that it has validated the will and authorised certain person(s) as executor(s) of the Estate.

Where a person dies without leaving a will (intestate) and in certain other situations, letters of administration can be sought from the Court by persons who are deemed to have an interest in the estate.

We can assist in the process of seeking a grant of probate or letters of administration and in the administration of the deceased’s estate by the Executor or Administrator following the issue of the grant by the Court.
