Grants of representation

Grants of representation

Grants of probate and grants of letters of administration are both forms of grants of representation.

A grant of representation is an official document with a stamp in the lower right-hand corner. It shows the person who has died – name, address and date of death, the total value of his or her estate and the names and addresses of the personal representatives.

The grant is proof that the personal representatives have authority to deal with the estate. Typically, it is required before the personal representatives can collect funds, sell property and so on.
