In England and Wales, Probate is the word used to describe the legal and financial processes involved with dealing with the property, money and possessions of a person who has passed away.
Before the executor of the Will can sort out any of the deceased’s assets, they may have to apply for Probate.
If there is a Will, the person named as the executor of the Will should be the one to apply for a Grant of Probate.
If there is not an existing Will, a close adult relative can apply for a letter of administration, which will grant them the same rights an executor. They will then be known as the administrator of the estate. The estate will have to be settled according to intestacy law, rather than the wishes stated in the Will.
