The Probate Process

The Probate Process

Probate is the process that appoints someone to deal with the estate of the deceased. If there is a Will, it is lodged with the Probate Registry and the person(s) named in the Will as Executor(s) will be granted Probate (the right to deal with the estate).

If there is no Will a suitable person, usually the closest relative, will apply to the Probate Registry for the right to administer the estate. The Probate Registry will then issue the Letters of Administration. The application for Letters of Administration may also require an Inland Revenue form to be filled out and the applicant will need to attend an interview with the Probate Registry.
