What Is Probate?
Broadly speaking, the term ‘probate’ is used to describe the procedure used to prove the authenticity of a will on someone’s passing, and of the executor of that will. In these cases, probate is usually fairly straight forward, if it is even required at all. However, complications can arise when no will in in place. Then, various parties will have to prove who it is that should be the administrator of the estate, and that they are eligible to do so. You will have to obtain a grant of probate in order to do anything with the deceased’s estate. Probate firms like Edmunds and Eve can help you navigate the complexities of the probate process with ease, so that you are under as little stress as possible as you move into the estate administration phase.
