This legal process is called obtaining Grant of Probate (where the deceased person left behind a Will) and obtaining Letters of Administration (where there is no Will).

Nobody really likes to think about death. Unfortunately, we all will die eventually. When death in the family occurs, you would need to have a probate lawyer.

Family members do not know what to do during this difficult time.  They  will naturally ask questions like “How do I gain access to his assets to pay the bills?”, “How do I transfer the bank acounts and properties to the beneficiaries?” and “When do I get my inheritance?”

 .

Established since 1988 and with more than 130 employees, PKWA Law is a leading specialist family law firm.   At PKWA Probate Law, we provide probate guidance for clients after the death of a loved one.

PROBATE FAQs – by PKWA Probate Lawyer .

.

What happens when a person dies and leaves behind

a property that belongs to him/her?

A person, known either as an ‘executor’ or an ‘administrator’, has to be appointed by the Court to take charge of the deceased person’s property (collectively known as his ‘estate’).

If there is a will that has been made by the deceased person, it will contain details of the appointment of an ‘executor’ to take charge of the estate as appointed by the deceased person.

If there is no will made by the deceased person, an appointment of a person known as an ‘administrator’ will be appointed to take charge of the estate. This administrator is usually one of the next-of-kin of the deceased.

In order for such persons to be recognised legally as the executor or administrator of the deceased person’s estate, you should engage an experienced probate lawyer to apply for ‘Probate’ or ‘Letters of Administration’ respectively.

 .

What is a Grant of Probate?

It is a court order authorising an executor, appointed by the deceased person under his Will, to administer his estate according to the directions contained in his Will.

 .

What are Letters of Administration?

It is a court order authorising a person(s) to administer the estate of the deceased person in accordance with the law.

 .

Who can apply for the Grant of Probate?

Only the executor(s) named in the Will of the deceased may apply for the Grant of Probate.

 .

Who can apply for Letters of Administration?

In the case of Letters of Administration, any of the deceased person’s family members is entitled to apply to be appointed as an administrator. However, the law gives priority to certain members of the family over others, depending on the marital status of the deceased person and his/her family’s composition.

For example, if the deceased person was single, his surviving parents will have the priority over his brothers and sisters to be the administrators; or if the deceased person was married with children, his spouse will have priority over the children to be the administrator.

The law also requires that at least 2 administrators be appointed where there are one or more minor beneficiaries. A ‘minor beneficiary’ refers to any person below 21 years of age who has a share in the estate. This is to protect the minor beneficiary’s interest in the estate.
