What is probate?

When someone in the family passes away, managing the deceased’s money, property and assets (the ‘estate’) may be difficult while you are grieving.  PKWA Law has helped many families with probate after a loved one has passed away.  We help families with probate so that the family members can unlock the deceased’s assets and distribute them to the rightful beneficiaries.

 . .

Immediate things to do

First, you will need to check whether the deceased person left a will behind.

If the person left a will, the probate lawyers at PKWA Law would help you apply for a ‘Grant of Probate’.  The person named in the will as the Executor becomes the executor of the deceased’s estate.

If the person did not leave a will, PKWA Law would apply for ‘Letters of Administration.  There person who is entitled to apply (usually the closest next of kin) will become the administrator of the deceased’s estate.


Summary of what you need to do

  • Check if the person leaves behind a will.
  • Apply for a Grant of Probate if the person left a will or apply for Letters of Administration if the person did not leave a will
  • Determine what assets were owned by the deceased and estimate the total value of the estate.
  • Pay off any of the deceased’s outstanding debt, bills or taxes.
  • According to the Intestate Succession Act, distribute the assets to the beneficiaries according to the will or distribute the assets to the beneficiaries (if there’s no will).
