WHAT IS PROBATE?

The word “Probate” is a legal term which means the official proving of a will.

You ‘Apply for Probate’ to have the legal right to deal with someone’s land, property, money and possessions (their ‘estate’).

 

You make the application to the Probate Registry and this gives the Executors named in the application the authority to act in the administration of the estate of the deceased.

 

When someone has died leaving an estate of substantial value, there are many stages to go through when dealing with the administration process and NBS are here to guide you through this. The process is slightly different depending on where you are in the UK.
