When a loved one passes on, you would need to apply for a Grant of Probate or Letter of Administration.
First, you will need to check whether the deceased person left a will behind.
If the person left a will, you will have to apply for a ‘Grant of Probate’ and become the executor of the deceased’s estate.
If the person did not leave a will, you will have to apply for ‘Letters of Administration’ and become the administrator of the deceased’s estate.
What is Grant of Probate?
A Grant of Probate is only issued when someone has died leaving behind a will. The Grant of Probate is a Court Order issued by the Family Justice Court appointing the executor(s) – who is named in the will – to administer a deceased person’s estate according to the directions contained in his Will.
What are Letters of Administration?
Letters of Administration are issued where there is no will. It is a Court Order authorising the person(s) named in it to administer the estate of the deceased person in accordance with the law. The administrator is invariably a member of the family.
Is a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration necessary?
Yes, if you wish to get access to the deceased person’s assets and bank accounts, pay off his debts, sell off or transfer the deceased person’s properties, and distribute the assets to the lawful beneficiaries.
Who Can Apply For Grant of Probate?
Only the executor named in the will can apply for probate.
Who can apply for Letters Of Administration?
In the case of the Letters of Administration, you are entitled to apply to be appointed administrator if you are a family member. However, the law gives first priority to certain members of the family over others. For example, if the deceased person is single, his surviving parents have priority over all other family members to be the administrators; if the deceased person was married with children, his spouse has priority over the children to be his administrator.
Singapore law requires at least 2 administrators to be appointed where there is at least one minor beneficiary. A minor beneficiary is someone below 21 years of age who has a share in the estate. This is to protect the minor beneficiary’s interest in the estate.
You are not able or willing to become an executor or administrator. Can you renounce your right to apply for a Grant of Probate or a Grant of Letters of Administration?
Yes. If you are the named executor(s) in the Will, or if you are have priority in law to apply for a Grant of Letters of Administration – and you are unwilling or unable to apply for a Grant of Probate or a Grant of Letters of Administration – you may give up (renounce) your rights and consent to other persons applying for a Grant of Probate or a Grant of Letters of Administration by filing a Renunciation and Consent.
For instance, the person having priority may not be living in Singapore or may have no time, and therefore may wish other family members to take over the job of being the executor or administrator.
Which court is in charge of Probate or Letters of Administration?
If the value of the estate of the deceased is below S$3 million, the application is made in the State Courts. If the value of the estate of the deceased exceeds S$3 million, the application is made in the Supreme Court. We will file the necessary application for you.
How long does probate take?
Once the probate court is satisfied that all the probate documents are in order, the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration will be granted.
At PKWA Law, we are usually able to obtain Grant of Probate and Letters of Administration within 1 to 2 months.
