PROBATE AND ESTATE ADMINISTRATION
When somebody dies it is important to make sure that the Estate is administered in an efficient and sympathetic manner. Some matters to consider are:
1. Will – if the deceased has made a will that obviously will give instructions as to how the deceased would like the Estate to be distributed. If there is no will then the Estate will be distributed in accordance with the law; known as the Intestacy Rules.
2. Assets and Liabilities – it is necessary to gather together details and information about the deceased’s assets and liabilities. If the net value of the deceased’s estate is under £5,000 then it can often be collected in and distributed without the need to get Court approval.
3. Grant of Representation – if however, the value of the deceased’s assets is in excess of £5,000 then it is essential to get Court approval in the form of obtaining a Grant of Probate, if there is a Will, or a Grant of Letters of Administration, if there is no Will. The Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration is the legal authority given by the Courts to enable the Estate to be gathered in and distributed.
