If you are the executor in a deceased’s estate, you will be required to carry out the instructions of the deceased person according to their will or distribute that estate under the law of intestate succession if there is no will.
In many cases, you will be required to obtain either a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration from the Supreme Court. This gives you the power to collect and deal with the assets in the estate.
