In the UK, probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person. This process involves identifying the assets and liabilities of the deceased, valuing their estate, and distributing their assets to their beneficiaries, according to their will or the laws of intestacy if there is no will.
The Probate Registry, part of the HM Courts and Tribunals Service, oversees the probate process. The process typically involves applying for a Grant of Probate, a legal document that gives the executor the authority to manage the deceased person’s estate. This generally involves many forms to be completed.
The probate process can be complex and time-consuming, especially if there are disputes over the will or the distribution of assets.
