Do I need Probate?

If a bank, a nursing home, or any organisation which holds assets of the deceased tells you that they will only give you these assets after seeing a copy of the Grant of Probate, then yes, you need Probate.

Sometimes these organisations will be happy to give you access to these assets if they are below a certain threshold, or if you provide alternative documentation, so you may want to confirm with these organisations first before deciding to obtain Probate.

If you are the executor and unhappy relatives are wishing to dispute the Will of the deceased, it is best to get Probate.
