Letters of administration are documents that are generated by the court. They’re signed by a judge and what they do is they grant authority to the person named in the letter, usually the personal representative of the estate, to conduct business on behalf of the estate. To administer it, to hold the properties contained within it, to sell them as needed, to pay bills, pay claims against the estate, to more or less, do the business of the estate in wrapping everything up for the probate process. These letters are required by most creditors, banks, financial institutions and the like, in order to conduct the business of the estate. So, the personal representative will usually be provided with several copies of these letters and certified copies would be available if there were more numerous creditors or establishments that required the letter to do business. Therefore, the letters themselves would be available for use by the personal representative.
