Probate is the name given to the process of winding up the estate of somebody who has died. Up to four people can be appointed as Executors to make sure the wishes of the deceased are carried out in accordance with their Will. These Executors will need to collect all the required information and paperwork to make an application to the Probate Registry for a Grant of Representation which is proof that the person(s) named in it are legally entitled to handle the affairs of the deceased’s estate.
If the Will didn’t appoint executors or there is no Will at all, the Probate Registry will issue Letters of Administration to allow the deceased’s estate to be dealt with.
Obtaining Probate can be a complicated and daunting task particularly if the estate is subject to Tax.
Liverpool Probate Solicitors Paul Crowley & Co can help with obtaining a Grant of Representation as well as dealing with the distribution of the deceased’s estate once all the assets have been liquidated.
