When a person dies they usually leave behind an estate (assets, money and/or property) and, hopefully a will.
The will should name one or more executors who are responsible for administering the estate and one of their first duties is to apply for a Grant of Probate from the Court.
What is Probate?
A Grant of Probate is an official document which the executors may need to administer the estate. It is issued by a division of the Court known as the Probate Registry.
