The Probate is a legal document.
If you are an Executor of an Estate, application has to be made to the Supreme Court for a Grant of Probate.
Obtaining the Grant of Probate is the first step in the process of administering the deceased’s estate.
Once Probate has been Granted by the Court, the Executor can then administer the Estate, resolve all claims and distribute the deceased’s estate in accordance with the Will.
The Supreme Court decides the legal validity of the Will and grants its approval by granting Probate to the executor. The probated will becomes a legal document that can be enforced by the executor.
The Probate also officially appoints the Executor as having legal power to dispose of the deceased’s assets in the manner specified in the Will. However, through the Probate process a will may be contested.
