PROBATE & ADMINISTRATION

When someone dies leaving property in New South Wales, an application must usually be made to the Supreme Court for a grant of probate or letters of administration. This gives the applicant the right to administer the estate and imposes certain duties and obligations on them.

If these duties are not properly fulfilled, then the executor or administrator may be held personally responsible for any loss to the beneficiaries of the estate. We can assist you with all aspects of estate administration, including:

  • Applications to obtain authority to administer and distribute an estate pursuant to a formal Will, an informal Will or where there is no Will at all (Probate or Letters of Administration)
  • Family Agreements to alter the distribution of assets that would otherwise occur pursuant to the deceased’s Will or the rules of intestacy
  • The duties and responsibilities involved in administering estates and testamentary trusts, including charitable trusts
  • The preparation of estate accounts
  • Claims for commission for the work performed in administering the estate
  • The collection of assets, their sale or transfer to beneficiaries and distribution of the estate.
