  • Probate is the legal process of organising the estate of a person who has passed away. The estate usually consists of property, land, money, business interests, stocks, shares, investments and personal possessions. Please note that, even if you expect to inherit part or all of the estate, you will still need to apply for probate unless: - You have joint-ownership of the estate with your spouse or civil partner; - You have a joint bank or building society account. However, if the person had other bank accounts probate will be necessary; - The sum of money left in the estate is under £5,000; - There is no property, land, significant business interests or shares within the estate.
