The Difference Between Grant of Probate and Letters Of Administration

By June 20, 2016 No Comments

The application to Court to obtain the authorisation is commonly known as proving or obtaining Probate. At the end of the process, the Court issues a document known as:

    1. The Grant of Probate authorising the Executor (where there is a Will); or
    2. The Grant of Letters Of Administration authorising the Administrator (where there is no Will).

A common misconception is that the Grant Letters Of Administration is a letter from a lawyer. This misconception usually arises when the term is merely referred to as “Letters of Administration” and that you can get it with the help of a lawyer, instead of stating “the Grant Letters of Administration” in full.

There are additional steps that are required by the Court for Grant Letters Of Administration. Read “How to Start the Grant of Probate Process?
