Deceased Estates Questionnaire
Obtaining a Grant of Probate is the process of having a Will validated by the court.
Once Probate is granted, the executor(s) named in the Will can administer the deceased estate.
Where a person dies without leaving a valid Will, Letters of Administration need to be obtained from the court which will allow the appointed ‘administrator’ to administer the deceased estate.
The law determines who will receive the estate where there is no valid Will.
Note: An Enduring Power of Attorney ends on the death of the donor.
