Letters of Administration

When there is no Will the Personal Representative must obtain a ‘Grant of Letters of Administration’ from the Probate Registry. This name is slightly misleading as it is actually a court order and not ‘letters.’ This gives the Personal Representative the legal authority to administer the estate. This is the equivalent to a Grant of Probate, but is used when there is no valid Will attached to the estate.
