What is Probate? (Confirmation in Scotland)

Probate is the formal legal process following a person’s death that authorises a ‘personal representative’ to deal with the deceased’s estate.

If a Will has been made, the named executors are responsible for obtaining Probate. Where no Will has been made, the next of kin will usually be the person who can take on this responsibility.
