Grant of Probate

Where a Will has been left, the Personal Representative must ensure that the wishes of the person who has died are carried out.

If the person who has died has left a will, the Will appoints one or more people to act as the Executors of the Will that is the people who are to administer the Estate. If you are named as an Executor of a Will, you may need to apply for a Grant of Probate.

The Grant of Probate is the official document which Executors may need to administer the Estate. It is issued by the Probate Registry.

The Executor is responsible for dealing with a deceased person’s estate. This includes settling unpaid debts or liabilities, paying inheritance tax and distributing assets to beneficiaries in accordance with the terms of the Will.
