What is the difference between Probate and Letters of Administration?
23rd May 2014

A Grant of Probate is issued to the executors named in a will. As stated above the Grant proves to asset holders that the executor has authority under the will to administer the deceased’s estate.

A Grant of Letters of Administration is issued in circumstances where the deceased has died without a will to the person who has the legal right to deal with the estate from a predetermined list of possible administrators. In must circumstances this would be a close relative such as a surviving spouse, child, parent or sibling.
