Grant of Probate

You may have been told that you require a Grant of Probate to deal with the assets in someone’s estate. A Grant of Probate is a document given to a person or persons by the Probate Registry stating that they are entitled to administer the estate of a particular deceased person. The Grant is usually issued to the Executors, also known as Personal Representatives. Most financial institutions require sight of a Grant before releasing any funds. If the deceased owned a property a Grant will definitely be required.
