Prepaid Probate in Cardiff, South Wales

Preparing for your Death

What is Probate?

Probate is a legal document.  Receipt of probate is the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under a will.

A probate court decides the legal validity of a testator’s (person’s) will and grants its approval, also known as granting probate, to the executor.

The probated will then becomes a legal instrument that may be enforced by the executor in the law courts if necessary.

A probate also officially appoints the executor (or personal representative), generally named in the will, as having legal power to dispose of the testator’s assets in the manner specified in the testator’s will.

However, through the probate process, a will may be contested.

Wills, Trusts and LPA's Wales

1. If the person who has died leaves a Will

In this case one or more ‘executors’ may be named in the Will to deal with the person’s affairs after their death. The executor applies for a ‘Grant of Probate’ from a section of the court known as the Probate Registry. The grant is a legal document which confirms that the executor has the authority to deal with the deceased person’s assets (property, money and possessions).

2. If the person who has died didn’t leave a Will

If there is no Will, a close relative of the deceased can apply to the Probate Registry to deal with the Estate.
 
In this case they apply for a ‘Grant of Letters of Administration’. If the grant is given, they are known as ‘administrators’ of the estate. Like the Grant of Probate, the Grant of Letters of Administration is a legal document which confirms the Administrator’s authority to deal with the deceased person’s assets.
 

In some cases, for example, where the person who benefits is a child, the law states that more than one person must act as the Administrator.

The Grant of Probate (or Letters of Administration) can be shown to anyone who is asked to release any money or other assets belonging to the Estate of the deceased.
