Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be an extremely traumatic time for anyone to go through. As Executor, being tasked with dealing with the administration of winding up an estate can add confusion at such a difficult time.

Executry process in Scotland

The executry process in Scotland varies depending on whether the deceased left a Will.

If there is a Will, the estate is known as a testate estate. In a testate estate, an Executor will be appointed within the Will. The Executor will be tasked with arranging Confirmation in the estate. In simple terms, Confirmation is the authority to administer the estate of the deceased. Once granted, the Executor must distribute the estate in accordance with the Will.

If there is no Will, the estate is known as an intestate estate. The processes in an intestate estate can be more complicated and involve more steps before the estate can be distributed. The distribution of the estate is governed by the intestacy rules as outlined within Scottish Succession law.
