What is a grant of probate?

A grant of probate is a legal document that gives you the right to deal with a person’s estate. You will only receive a grant of probate if the person died with a will and you are named as the estate’s executor.

If a person dies without a will, the process of applying for probate is the same as if they had one, but you will instead receive letters of administration rather than a grant of probate. However, letters of administration give you the same rights as a grant of probate and will allow you to go about dealing with an estate in exactly the same way.
