Probate is the official grant of the right to administer a deceased person's estate under the terms of their will. Where probate is required (i.e where the estate involved land, property or shares), it is the duty of one or more of the executors to apply for it. Once probate is granted, the executors can then begin to dispose of the assets in accordance with the dead person's wishes.
