Probate & Administration of Estates

Probate is the term commonly used to describe the process of winding up a person’s estate after they have died. It involves establishing what assets were held, what debts owed, the extent of any Inheritance Tax to be paid, and the distribution of the estate to those entitled to receive it according to the terms of the Will. If there is no Will then according to the Laws of Intestacy.
