Are you an appointed Executor or next of kin? The existence of an Original Will, a copy only, or the absence of one at all, will dictate the type of application (be it for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration etc – collectively referred to as ‘Grants of Representation’) that may need to be made before a deceased Estate may be administered to its beneficiaries. Depending upon how the deceased’s Estate was structured, an application for a Grant of Representation may not even be necessary, however there may be other legal housekeeping matters which need be attended to. It can seem confusing and tedious. Let me help explain and navigate you through.
