Answers to some of our frequently asked questions...
WHAT IS A GRANT OF LETTERS OF ADMINISTRATION?
The Grant is an official court document confirming that the person named in the Grant is responsible for the administration of a deceased’s estate (e.g. bank accounts, property, accommodation bonds, etc).
DO I NEED PROBATE AS WELL?
No, Grants of Probate are for Wills that validly appoint an Executor. You apply for a Grant of Letters of Administration where the deceased died without a Will or if the named Executors in a Will cannot (or do not want to) act.
