What’s the difference between a Grant of Probate &
Letters of Administration ?
And which one do I need?
A Grant of Probate is required if you are stated in the Will of the deceased as an Executor or Trustee, i.e the deceased has given you the responsibility to manage their remaining assets and obligations. A Grant of Probate is a court order that gives you this legal power to carry out the responsibilities and wishes of the deceased as stated in the Will.
Letters of Administration is a court order given to the next of kin of the deceased, the power to manage the deceased’s assets and obligations when there is no Will written. The court will decide who it thinks is suitable to be granted the Letters of Administration and thereby given the power to manage the deceased’s assets.
To summarise, you can Apply for a Grant of Probate if the deceased has left you as an Executor or Trustee in their Will.
Apply for Letters of Administration if you are the next of kin of the deceased, who did not leave behind a Will.
