What is a Grant of Probate and Letters of Administration?
When a person dies, somebody has to deal with their estate. To deal with the deceased person’s estate, a Grant of Probate (where there is a Will) or Letters of Administration (where there is no Will) must be obtained.
Probate is the process of proving and registering in the Singapore Family Court the last Will of a deceased person.
It is usually the executor of the Will who administers the estate and handles the disposal of the assets and debts. To get the authority to do this, the Executor has to obtain a legal document called a ‘Grant of Probate’.
The Grant of Probate is the proof required to enable the Executor to take control of the deceased person’s assets (such as bank accounts and properties).
If there is no Will, the personal representative will apply to the court for a legal document called Letters of Administration.
