Probate & Administration
If a deceased estate contains land, a high bank account balance, a retirement village lease, a large share portfolio, or other assets of significance, it is more than likely that one of the following Grants will need to be obtained from the Supreme Court before the assets of the estate can be collected and distributed to the beneficiaries: a Grant of Probate, if there is a Will; or a Grant of Letters of Administration, if there is no Will. A Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration is a legal document that authorises the applicant to manage the estate of a deceased person in accordance with the provisions of the deceased’s will. Applying for a Grant of Probate or Grant of Letters of Administration can be a technical and confusing process. Our solicitors can help you obtain your Grant and attend to the distribution of the estate quickly and efficiently.
