If your loved one died without a Will, the law will determine who will receive the estate according to the law of Intestacy. The law will also determine which of your loved one’s relatives is entitled to administer the estate. These will be called the Administrator rather than the Executor. In the situation where there is no Will, a Grant of Letters of Administration has to be obtained from the Probate Registry. The person named in the Grant of Letters of Administration i.e. the Administrator, will then be able to deal with the estate.
