Product Description

The people who have the right to apply for a Grant of Representation are the Personal Representatives (PRs) of the estate. PRs are either the Executors named in the Will or the next of kin following the Rules of Intestacy if there is no Will. There are different types of Grant depending on the circumstances and who is to deal with the estate.

The two main types of Grant of Representation are:

  • A Grant of Probate, where there is a Will
  • Letters of Administration, in situations where there is no Will
  • To obtain a Grant of Representation, an Oath and supporting documentation is required. An additional fee over and above our costs has to be paid. This is presently a £67 disbursement.
