Estate Administration

Estate Administration is a term which covers everything which needs to be done once a Grant of Probate (when a valid Will exists) or Letters of Administration (when no valid Will exists) has been successfully applied for and received.

The process can be long and complex in either case but basically covers the settling of any outstanding liabilities and then (& only then) the Distribution of Assets to heirs – either according to the Will or to the Laws of Intestacy.
