After your death, your executors (which could be a family member, friend or relative) will have to look after your estate and financial affairs. This could include things like closing down your bank account, settling bills and debts or filing Inland Revenue or land registry forms. If a Will has been left, the probate involves checking that it is legally valid and confirms who the executor is. In the absence of a Will, this can be complicated.
