What is probate?
Essentially, a Grant of Probate is permission from the court to say that a Will is valid, and the executor has authority to begin administering the estate after someone dies.
Probate isn't needed in all cases - for example, if the estate is small and of low value. In other cases where there is no Will, a Grant of Letters of Administration may be required instead.
