One of the most frequent questions we are asked is “what is Probate?”. This can mean many things to different people, but in short Probate is a document that allows those appointed via a Will to administer an estate. Letters of Administration are for estates where the deceased did not leave a Will.
If you are appointed as an Executor and/or Trustee, you must ensure that you have not missed any assets or liabilities and that you understand the legalities and regulations when it comes to administering an estate. As an Executor and a Trustee, you are personally liable if an estate has not been administered correctly, or if a beneficiary has been missed.
