What is the law on probate?


Probate is seeking the legal right to deal with a deceased person’s estate. The law typically requires checking the will (or applying for a grant of probate if there is no will), paying inheritance tax, collecting assets from the estate, paying off any debts then distributing the estate to the beneficiaries.
