Understanding the next steps

When someone close to you dies, it can be difficult to work out what to do next. There are a number of tasks that need to be considered. 



What is probate?

The term ‘probate’ refers to the Grant of Probate, which is a legal document that may need to be obtained when administering the estate of someone who has passed away.
