When a family member or friend passes away and you find yourself responsible for winding up their financial affairs it can be a daunting task to take on; especially at such a distressing time.
Probate is the term used for the legal process in dealing with the estate of someone who has died. It is the responsibility of the executors named in the will to administer the estate. If there is no will, the person is deemed to have died intestate and so it will be the responsibility of the people who have a legal right under the rules of intestacy.
