Pritchard & Co Law Firm, LLP’s sound solutions to complex legal issues:
Formal estate administration may be necessary in situations where the person who passes away is single (or widowed) and owns assets, like land, in their name solely. Where a person passes away leaving a Will, the personal representative (or executor) will need to apply for Probate. Probate is the procedure where the Court confirms the validity of the Will and confirms you, the executor, as the person who will handle the estate assets. This is also known as the Grant of Probate.
