The Process after one’s death
Upon one’s death, they often leave behind assets and debts that will need to be managed and settled.
If there is a Will, a Probate will be granted to the nominated Executor(s) to act for the Estate. If there is no Will, a Letter of Administration will be granted to the appropriate person to act for the Estate. This generally would be the surviving spouse or domestic partner and/or the next of kin.
Why you would need a solicitor
Generally, you would need to seek legal advice in how to administer the Estate.
