grant for the use and benefit

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Where a minor or mentally incapable person is appointed executor of a will, a grant of letters of administration for the use and benefit of the minor or incapacitated person is required to be made to another person. It is only required where the minor or incapacitated person is the only appointed executor or where other executors are not able or willing to act. A cessate grant is then issued to the minor when he reaches 18. If a person entitled to a grant so wishes, letters of administration for his use and benefit may also be granted to his lawfully constituted attorney (Non-Contentious Probate Rules 1987 31–35).
