What is probate?
Probate is an order from the Supreme Court and a legal document that says the Will is valid and reflects the intentions of the deceased.
The executor of the Will needs this document in order to distribute the estate in accordance with the last wishes of the deceased.
Probate is needed if the deceased died owning real estate. The exception to this is if the real estate was in joint names. If the estate is very small and uncomplicated there will be no need for Probate or Letters of Administration.
The need for a Grant of Probate can depend on the form in which the assets are held. If an application for probate of the Will is uncontested, the grant of probate will be known as “common form” which means that the Will in question can be revoked. If a grant of probate is contested, the grant will be in “solemn form” and this can only be revoked in exceptional cases.
