What is Probate & Grant of Probate
Probate is the authority you need to deal with a person’s assets after they die.
If you are named as the Executor in the Will you will need to make an application to the Supreme Court of New South Wales for a Grant of Probate. This Grant of Probate will allow you to collect all the assets of the deceased and pay any debts out of the Estate of the deceased. You will then be able to distribute the remainder of the deceased’s Estate in accordance with their Will.
