What is Probate?

If you're named as an executor of someone's Will, you’ll need a legal document called a 'grant of probate' that gives you the right to sort out their affairs.

Proof of probate is essential for dealing with banks and other financial institutions, local authorities, tax and pensions, estate agents, insurance and utility companies. In most cases, the bank or relevant institution will need to see the grant before transferring control of the assets.

Probate can be lengthy, depending on the size, value and complexity of someone's Estate but it is much easier if that person has made a Will. 

If there is no Will, then sorting out someone's affairs can become much more complicated, time consuming and costly.

 Saga’s specialist legal advisers are always happy to talk you through your options - call us on 0800 056 0134.
