What Does It Mean When Something Is In Probate?

A probate is required to register and validate a person’s will in order for their wishes to be carried out by an executor named in the will. The court issues a document confirming the will is valid, and also the appointment of the executor. 

What does it mean when something is in probate? It is the legal process being undertaken for an asset or assets included in an estate or will (e.g. property, superannuation) of a deceased person. Sometimes probate is required for assets that need a certified copy of the grant of probate from the Supreme Court in order to be released or for a title to be transferred. 

So what does it mean if a property is in probate? It means that the court is preparing documentation that will enable a property to be transferred or released as part of the will of a deceased person.
