Applying for probate
If the deceased died testate (with a will), then we can assist you in applying for probate. A Grant of Probate is issued by the Supreme Court and confirms your appointment as the deceased personal representative. The process involves proving that the testator or testatrix is deceased and that the will in which you are appointed as executor, is the most recent will and therefore the one to abide by.
A Grant of Probate conclusively determines the validity of a will but not the validity of the dispositions contained within it. It also protects you in your role as executor from any potential action by the beneficiaries of the will.
If the deceased died intestate (without a will) or in any other case, we can help you to apply for Letters of Administration, which follows a similar process to the Grant of Probate. The steps involved in administering an estate varies according to the circumstances of that estate and we’ll always tailor our services to meet your exact requirements.
