Probate refers to a legal proceeding that determines whether or not there are any assets in a deceased person's name at their death that have not been administered before they died (i.e., if anything was left by them). Probates also determine how these assets should be distributed among beneficiaries as well as enable creditors of the dead party to make claims against his property. A probate court decides on distribution issues when there is no last will, but usually appoints attorneys as special administrators to see that the will is carried out.
If you are a beneficiary or a creditor, it's important for you to know what happened with your loved one's estate and make sure they don't owe any outstanding debts before making final decisions on how their assets should be distributed. Most probate courts require an inventory of all property in order to determine whether there was anything left by the deceased person which needs distribution.
The process usually takes between 12-18 months, but can take up to 24 months if there are many legal challenges from creditors and beneficiaries who have claims against the decedent’s estate at death (i.e., disputes over inheritance).
What happens after the probate is granted?
When a person dies, their possessions and money become unclaimed until someone steps in to administer them. There are two different types of probate that can happen when administering an estate: grant of probate or letter of administration. The difference between these is determined whether the will stated who should take over as executor if it was not left up for others to decide by contract law (grant) or if there wasn't any wording about how property would be distributed upon death (letter).
You may be a personal representative of someone's estate if they die and do not have an existing will. The executor is the individual who must take care of all matters involving probate, which includes filing various court papers with the local courthouse in order to obtain authorisation for administration from a judge. Understanding what is required goes hand-in-hand with understanding how it works before you can go ahead and try your luck at being granted this authority by law - so read on!
Even with probate granted, you will need a valuation of the assets so that an accurate report can be submitted. The personal representation has one final task before cashing out any money from their loved one's account: gathering up all belongings and getting them ready for sale or distribution to heirs through various means.
The grant of probate is the last legal document necessary to determine a person's final will. The first thing you should do after receiving this important document is inform all interested parties, including any liabilities and asset holders with notification that they are now responsible for releasing funds or debts owed by the estate in question. Following these instructions can also help clear up what may seem like an insurmountable mess left behind from your loved one who has passed away; it could be very beneficial to place advertisements on both local newspapers as well as major metropolitan gazettes so creditors and other claimants come forward without being scared off by their own ignorance about how much money was actually owed at time of death.
