Everything That You Need To Know

In a nutshell, a Grant of Probate is issued to the named executors of any valid will. Whereas letters of administration are given to the person entitled to inherit under the rules of intestacy if the deceased died without a will.

Additionally, in the case of a valid will but no executor, a grant of letters of administration with will annexed will be issued.

The grant gives the executor the authority to handle all of the deceased's assets. This typically includes savings, investments, and properties.
