Probate is the legal process of validating a deceased’s will and carrying out the administration of the deceased’s estate. When there is no legal will,estate is settled according to intestacy laws set out under the Law of Succession Act (Cap 160 of the Laws of Kenya). Probate ensures that the deceased’s assets, including property, is transferred according to the deceased’s will or the intestacy laws.

Therefore, when a person who resides in Kenya or foreigner dies with assets in Kenya, the beneficiaries or next of kin are not able to deal with such assets without a grant of probate or letter of administration being produced. Financial institutions like bank or insurers may not release funds or sum assured, Companies registries will not agree to the sale, or transfer shares and the Land Office will not allow any dealing with property without a grant of probate or letter of administration being produced by the claimant.
