What Is Probate?

When a loved one has passed away, an appropriate person (usually a family member) has to apply to court to obtain:

  • Grant of Probate (where a family member has passed away with a Will); or
  • Grant of Letters of Administration (where a family member has passed away without a Will).

 What is a Grant of Probate?

Where a deceased has passed away with a valid Will, the person named to manage his estate (the Executor) has to apply to court for a Grant of Probate.

 .

What are Letters of Administration?

Where a deceased has passed away without making a Will, his next-of-kin will have to apply to Court to be appointed as Administrator. Usually, the Administrator is the spouse or the eldest child.

 .

What is the job of the Executor (where there is a will) and Administrator (where there is no Will)?

Assets of a deceased remain frozen and cannot be distributed to the beneficiaries unless the personal representative applies to court for the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration. Both their main job is the same – they are to administer the deceased’s estate and distribute the assets.   In the case of the Executor, he is to distribute the assets according to the deceased’s wishes as stated in the Will, and in the case of the Administrator, he is to distribute it in accordance with the Intestate Succession Act.  It is therefore common that in the case of a deceased who did not make a Will, the Administrator is usually the next-of-kin.

 .

What happens after the court has issued the Grant of Probate or the Letters of Administration?

Once the Court has issued the Grant or Letters of Administration, you may then bring this Court Order to the various institutions (e.g. banks) to realise the assets.

If there was a Will, the Executor has to distribute the assets in accordance with the Will.   If there was no Will, the Administrator has to distribute the assets in accordance with the Intestate Succession Act.   Please read here to find out how assets are to be distributed in the event of a person dying without a Will. .
