Probate is the process of dealing with the estate of someone who has died.

A Grant of Representation is required to give you the legal right to deal with the deceased’s assets.  When there is a valid Will, the Grant is issued to the Executors by the Probate Court and it is called a Grant of Probate.  If there is no Will, the Grant is issued to the next of kin under the Rule of Intestacy and it is called a Grant of Letters of Administration.
