What is Probate?

Probate is the process of transferring property legal title from the decreased person to their heirs or beneficiaries. It also refers to the legal document (Grant of Probate) issued by the court to confirm the validation of the Will as well as the administration right of the Will executor to finalise a deceased person’s financial and legal affairs.

In case will maker fails to name an executor, usually the court needs to appoint someone to administer the estate called an administrator. Often this is the beneficiary with the largest portion of the estate. An administrator has the same responsibilities as the executor after the grant of the Court and will perform asset distribution to related parties
