Probate ‘the right to deal with an individual’s estate, after they have passed away’, If you are the sole executor or individual, handling the estate, you will need to apply for a grant of probate yourself.

You will not need probate if, you already own a share of the property, have a joint bank or building society account with the owner, or if the sum of money left in the account is minor.

If the deceased is intestate. A relative or close friend will need to apply to the probate registry. In this case, they will apply for what’s known as ‘grant of letters of administration’.
