When someone passes away, all of their finances, possessions and property (also called their ‘estate’) is split up amongst the beneficiaries in their will by the chosen executor. Once probate is granted, the executor will calculate the total value of the estate, work out any inheritance tax, pay off residual debts and then divide the remaining estate as instructed.
Generally speaking ‘probate’ is the name given to the administration and execution of a will when someone dies. In other words, the legal process whereby someone’s wishes are carried out.
