Maidstone Probate Registry Office
is part of The Probate Service. This is part of the Family Division of the High Court. It deals with ‘non-contentious’ probate business (where there is no dispute about the validity of a will or entitlement to take a grant), and issues grants of representation. These grants of representation are known as either:
- Probate (when the deceased person left a valid will and an executor is acting)
- Letters of administration with will (when a person has left a valid will but no executor is acting)
- Letters of administration (usually when there is no valid will).
These different types of grants of representation appoint people known as personal representatives to administer the deceased person’s estate.
