When a person passes away, their Estate must be dealt with. However, this cannot be done without an order from the Supreme Court.
If the deceased has a valid Will, a Grant of Probate will need to be applied for before the Executor can administer the Estate. Once probate is obtained, the Executor’s role is to distribute the assets in accordance with the Will.
When a person dies without a Will, this is known as dying intestate.
In order to deal with the deceased’s Estate, the rules of intestacy apply and Letters of Administration will need to be applied for. In this case, a similar method to probate is followed to allow the Administrator (usually the next of kin) to distribute the Estate.
Our probate service is efficient and professional, in what of course is a difficult time.
