Frequently Asked Questions:

Probate is the process of administering the estate of a deceased person.

If you have recently lost a loved one, you may be wondering if you need probate to deal with their estate. Before submitting your application, it’s worth checking to make sure you need it.  

Probate gives you the legal right to deal with their estate when they die. This includes things like property, money and possessions.

Once you’ve worked out that you need probate and built up a good picture of the assets and debts within the estate, you should start your application as soon as possible. The Government can take a little while to approve applications, so the sooner you submit the better. 

The executor or administrator of the estate takes responsibility for applying for probate and distributing the estate to the beneficiaries. 

Traditionally, applying for probate has been a complex, expensive process that can take many months to get sorted. But there are now options available to help make things quicker, simpler and more affordable.
