What is probate?. . .
Probate is the authority given by the Court that allows an Executor of a Will to deal with a deceased's assets. Probate is not always but is usually required. There is no law that says an Executor has to get probate. However, most institutions need this before they can allow someone to deal with the property of a deceased person. If property is held in joint names, then probate is not required as title automatically passes to one owner if the other owner dies.
How do I get probate?. . .
The Executors need to submit an 'Application for Probate,' together with the original Will to the Court.
What are my legal duties as an Executor? . . .
Amongst other things, like arranging the funeral, you will need to get probate before you can manage the deceased's estate, such as accessing bank accounts or transferring property. You need to carry out the deceased's wishes as set out in the Will as soon as possible.
Can I get Probate if I am not the Executor named in the Will? . . .
No. You must be one of the Executor(s) named in a valid Will to get Probate. If you are not one of the Executor(s) but you are the closest living relative, you may still be able to obtain an authority to manage the estate. This type of authority is called a grant of Letters of Administration.
