Probate is the term commonly used to describe the legal process for applying for the right to deal with a deceased person’s affairs. It can also be referred to as administering the estate. A grant of representation is a court-issued document that gives the legal personal representative authority to administer the estate. Where a will was left, this is known as a grant of probate and is issued to the executor. Where no will was left, it is known as a grant of letters of administration and is issued to an administrator – usually a family member.
