I have a Will. Why will my estate still need to go to Probate?
23rd May 2014

Death freezes the deceased’s assets and most organisations such as building societies, banks and other financial institutions will not allow them to be dealt with unless the person wishing to do so can prove that he or she has the appropriate authority. The only acceptable evidence of such authority is usually in the form of a sealed Grant of Probate issued by the High Court. In addition, if the estate also involves property the Land Registry will not allow the property to registered in the name of the beneficiary or for the property to be transferred to a new buyer by the estate without production of a Grant of Representation.
