Will

A Will is an official document that sets out how you would like your property and assets to be distributed amongst your family and friends after you have died.

It may also contain instructions and your wishes concerning who you would like to act as guardians of your children, and what type of funeral you want to have.

Probate

Probate is the general term used when dealing with the estate of a Deceased person who has left a valid Will. A Grant of Probate is the official document (incorporating a copy of the last Will) which gives the Executor of that Will legal authority to administer with the Deceased’s estate. Alternatively, where the Deceased has not left a valid Will, Letters of Administration may be required to be obtained by the Deceased’s Personal Representatives if they require to collect in and distribute the Deceased’s assets to the persons entitled to receive them under the Rules of Intestacy (dying without a valid Will).

There are a number of complexities involved in administering an estate, which is why most Executors and Personal Representatives prefer to engage a firm of Solicitors for expert advice in this field.
