What is Probate?

Probate is simply a term used when someone passes away to deal with their money, paying outstanding bills and passing the money to the beneficiaries of the estate.

When do I need to get a Grant of Probate?

In many instances the person that has died will have asserts worth more than £5,000 and a Grant is purely a document issued by the Probate Court (HMCTS) to allow the Executors to close those accounts or sell property and discharge the debts before paying the money out to the beneficiaries.

Will I need a Will?

Not everyone who passes away has made a Will.  It doesnt matter if there isnt a Will there is a process called the Rules of Intestacy that tells us who will benefit.
