What is Probate?

When a person dies somebody has to deal with their estate (money property and possessions left) by collecting in all the money, paying any debts and distributing what is left to those people entitled to it. Probate is the court?s authority; given to a person or persons to administer a deceased person?s estate and the document issued by the Probate Service is called a Grant of Representation. This document is usually required by the asset holders as proof to show the correct person or persons have the Probate Service?s authority to administer a deceased person?s estate.

After a person has died everything that was owned is known as their estate. It can be made up of Money (Cash or money in the bank), life insurance policy, shares, property (like their home) and personal possessions such as a car or jewellery. If the deceased had debts, these must be paid out of the estate.

If a Will was made, the estate will be passed to relatives or friends according to the instructions of the will, or if no Will was made, according to the rules of intestacy.

The deceased would have appointed an executor to deal with his estate and they in turn would have to apply for a special legal authority before they can deal with the estate. This is called Probate.
