If the deceased did not prepare a will, appoint an executor, or the executor is unwilling to fulfill their duty, a letter of administration can be used as an alternative to probate. 

A grant of letters of administration is an official court document that proves an individual has the authority to execute the estate. 

The first step in receiving a letter of administration is to speak to a probate specialist. Our team at Heritage Law has the expertise to help you go through the process of submitting an application to receive a grant of letters of administration.
