Form A3C Secondary or subsequent grant of representation (De Bonis Non Grant)

A secondary or subsequent grant may be required in some circumstances after Probate or Letters of Administration have been granted. For instance, if the personal representative has died, a new executor or administrator must be appointed to complete the administration of the estate.
