What is Probate?

A: Probate is the procedure followed by the Executors or Personal Representatives after a person has died. They will need to swear an oath to obtain Grant of Probate which will give them the powers needed to administer the estate, for example, to distribute monies to beneficiaries under the Will (or the intestacy rules) and to transfer land or shares.
