Losing a loved one can be made even more complicated and difficult by legal paperwork. Probate will be required where:
- A deceased person owned real estate by themselves or as tenants in common
- The deceased has bank accounts that are not joint with another person
- A deceased person's banking institution, creditors, or investment company requires it
Probate is the process by which the court proves a deceased person’s will as their valid last will and testament. It requires an application, made to the court office in the region where a deceased person lived, accompanied by the original will of the deceased.
