What is estate administration?

Estate administration is the entire process of dealing with probate – also known as administering an estate. It covers everything from gathering information about the estate, to submitting the probate application, to distributing assets to beneficiaries.

Estate administration process

If you’re the executor of a will or administrator of an estate, you have two options when applying for probate: a grant-only service or full estate administration.

Our grant-only service is a great option if you have plenty of free time to deal with property, banks and paperwork yourself. But if you’re keen to move quickly or are worried about making mistakes, our full estate administration may be the better choice.

You can see what’s included for each service below:
