Probate & Letters of Administration
Passed away leaving a Will - Probate
If a person has died, leaving behind a Will, the nominated Executor will need to apply to the Court for a "grant of probate" prior to administer the deceased's estate.
At Greigs Legal we prepare the legal documents required to obtain a grant of probate and assist the Executor in administering the estate in accordance with the last Will of the deceased.
Passed away leaving no Valid Will - Letter of Administration
Letters of Administration is a legal document that allows an Administrator to distribute the deceased's estate in accordance with intestacy laws, in circumstances where an Executor has not been appointed in absence of a valid Will. The Administrator is usually anyone who is entitled to a whole or part of the deceased's estate such as a spouse, next of kin, or dependant.
Letters of Administration can be a complex process but with the right advise and support, you can ensure no unnecessary delays.
