What is probate?

Probate is the legal process whereby a will is “proved” in a court and accepted as a valid public document that is the true last testament of the deceased.

The probate officially appoints the personal representative, generally named in the will, as having legal power to dispose of the testator’s assets in the manner specified in the testator’s will.

What if there is no will?

If there is no will, a close relative of the deceased can apply to the probate registry to deal with the estate. In this case they apply for a ‘grant of letters of administration’. If the grant is given, they are known as ‘administrators’ of the estate. This grant of letters of administration is also a legal document which confirms the administrator’s authority to deal with the deceased person’s assets. As there is no will in this case the estate will have to be distributed according to a strict order of priority called the ‘rules of intestacy’.
