What is Probate?

Probate is the legal and financial process of closing down an estate (house, savings, investments, personal belongings) after someone has died, and distributing them in accordance with the wishes in that person’s Will. The word Probate means to ‘prove’ the Will by establishing its validity, making certain it is the Last Will and Testament of the person who has died. This must be done via the Probate Registry which is the court process in England and Wales.
