Probate is the legal process of releasing funds from the deceased’s bank accounts, and other investments and property. It is the responsibility of the person named as the Executor in the Will to administer the estate in accordance with the terms of the Will and it is they who will need to apply for Probate. If Probate is required, the estate has to be administered in accordance with the intestacy rules.
It can be particularly stressful and time-consuming. Your lawyer will take on this job for you, using his/her considerable skills to speed and ease the process in an efficient and sympathetic manner.
