Wills & Probate Law Services in Kildare
When a person dies leaving a Will, their personal representatives who they have appointed in their Will have to make an application to the Probate Office for a Grant of Probate to their estate. If a person has not made a Will then an application has to be made to the Probate Office for a Grant of Administration intestate.
We will advise you on the steps to be taken to apply for these grants. This can include assembling information from the date of death, preparing the necessary Affidavit which has to be submitted to the Revenue Commissioners and preparing all other forms so that the Grant of Representation can be applied for. Our Firm will deal with all financial institutions on your behalf and arrange to collect all assets, obtain the necessary Tax Clearance Certificates and ultimately distribute the estate in accordance with the terms of the Will or Intestacy.
As a guide we set out below some of the documentation that would be required when a person is making an application for a Grant of Probate/Administration-
- The deceased’s PPS number
- Copy of the funeral account
- The original death certificate of the deceased
- The original Will or any codicils
- A schedule of assets of the deceased to include shares held, bonds, credit union account and bank accounts, property and other assets
- Details of any foreign assets held by the deceased
- PPS numbers and names and addresses for all beneficiaries
- Details of any previous inheritances received by the deceased beneficiaries
