Where one of several executors named in the will took leave (ie temporary absence) at the granting of probate, that executor may apply for and also be granted probate at a later time, ie double probate. Where the other executors were granted probate and are registered on the title, the later executor may be added to the title as a registered proprietor by means of a transfer and not by transmission application.
