What is Probate?
Put simply, Probate is a term used generically to refer to the process of dealing with the estate of a deceased person. The purpose is to make sure all relevant taxes are collected, money owing to creditors is paid, debts owed to the deceased are collected, and the remaining assets from the estate are distributed to the relevant beneficiaries in accordance with their wishes.
It can be an incredibly complicated procedure, and with this, in mind, we have created this Probate and Estate Administration Guide to help explain what’s involved, and the terminology that you may hear or read.
