Posted on 26th October 2022
What is a Grant of Probate?
A Grant of Probate is an order made by the court that gives a person, known as the executor, the legal authority to deal with the estate of a person who has died.
The executor can sell property, pay debts and distribute money to the people who are entitled to it.
This document is important when selling a property, as it shows that the correct procedures have been followed and that there are no disputes over the will.
In this blog post, we will explain when you need a grant of probate and how it can help with selling a property.
When do you need a Grant of Probate?
If you want to sell a property that is owned by someone who has died, you will need to get a Grant of Probate from the court.
This will give you legal authority to deal with the property. You may also need one if there is no will or if the will does not name an executor.
In these cases, you will need to apply to the court for a Grant of Administration.

How is a Grant of Probate relevant to a will?
A grant of probate is only relevant if the deceased person left a will.
If there is no will, then you will need to apply for a Grant of Administration from the court. This is a different process and you will not need a solicitor for this.
When should you sort this out?
You should apply for a Grant of Probate as soon as possible after the person has died.
This is because the executor will need to deal with the estate and sell the property. If you wait too long, it could make the process more complicated and take longer.
Selling a property is a big responsibility and you need to make sure that you do it correctly.
A Grant of Probate can help with this by giving you the legal authority to deal with the property.
