When a person dies, someone has to manage the distribution and settlement of his assets and affairs. But the person named as the executor in the will of the deceased must first obtain Grant of Probate before he can perform this function.
If you find yourself in a situation where you have to handle a deceased person's will or estate, Borchard and Moore strongly recommend that you seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity so you can be guided and informed of the proper legal steps that you must follow.
