If you are an executor of someone’s Will you may need a legal document called a ‘Grant of probate’ to enable you to sort out the deceased person’s affairs. If there is no Will, a close relative can apply for a ‘Grant of letters of administration’. Probate is a term commonly used when talking about applying for the right to deal with a deceased person’s affairs (called administering the estate).
