Probate administration refers to the procedure where a decedent’s assets are distributed pursuant to the terms of a Last Will and Testament or by law, if there’s no Will. An “estate” are the assets of the decedent that are titled in the decedent’s name. Generally, the probate process involves collecting the decedent’s assets, liquidating them, paying debts, paying necessary taxes, and distributing the property to the heirs. These activities are the responsibility of the personal representative of the decedent as named in the will.
If there is no will, an administrator will be appointed by the court to probate the decedent’s assets after notice is given to all interested parties.
