Probate and Administration of Estates

When someone dies leaving assets in Singapore and/or elsewhere, oftentimes, his or her assets (some or all) may be frozen pending the deceased's legal representative obtaining a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration. 

Although theoretically, the personal representative of the deceased may apply to the Court for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration in Singapore, the Court's procedures, documentation and the legal issues relating to such applications may be too daunting and confusing to a layman. Commonly, next of kins of a deceased will engage a Probate and Estate Lawyer in Singapore to assist him in making the relevant application for a Grant of Probate, Letters of Administration, Resealing or others.

Testacy and Intestacy

When a person dies, the family members will try to ascertain if the deceased has left a Will and Testament. A person dies with a valid Will dies testate, whereas one dies without a valid Will dies intestate.
