    Assenting Property using Probate - ID needed?

    Assenting Property using Probate - ID needed? 8th Mar 18 at 3:14 PM
    My father died intestate earlier this year & so his widow would be the sole beneficiary.
    I've applied for probate to administer the estate, so I believe that I now simply have to fill in the AP1 & AS1 forms to assent the deeds of his house (wholly owned, in his sole name) to her.
    Some of the sections of AP1 (Panels 12-14 requiring ID for whoever's named in Panel 7 - which I think is me, as well as Panel 6) are a tad confusing...
    However, as the probate court letter of administration names me as the personal representative 'for the use & benefit of...' his wife (& gives her name therein) - I believe that no other ID forms need be submitted to the Land Registry along with the AP1, AS1, the grant of administration & 40 fee.

    Am I right?!
    Thanks for any help!

    Yes you are right.

    Just send a copy of the LOA with the forms and fee this will be enough to prove id.

    Yes, house is the major asset at around 90K, plus some savings which have largely been used to covered funeral expenses.

    You don't need to prove your own identity as the letters if administration are enough
    But if your Mother is the beneficiary and not named as a co-administrator then you will need to have her identity verified
    Your Mother is the applicant as she will be going on the register so panel 6 is her full name
    You would add your details in panel 7 as you are lodging the application
