The FR Guide to Estates

on Tuesday, 17 September 2013. Posted in Latest Articles, Litigation and Personal

When someone dies the following steps have to be taken:

  • The will should be read to make sure that you understand what it means

  • The people named in the will as trustees or executors apply to the High Court for a probate order confirming the will and giving them authority to deal with estate assets

  • If there is no will then someone has to apply to the High Court for a grant of letters of administration giving them authority to deal with estate assets

  • The executors (if there is a will) or the administrators (if there is no will) then, using the probate document or the letters of administration document, have to transfer the assets in accordance with the will.
