Deceased Estates & Estate Administration
When your loved one passes away, it is common to feel stressed and uncertain about handling their affairs. We have experience with all types and sizes of estates and we can help you navigate this difficult time. If your loved one did not have a Will, we can help you understand how to handle their estate. This is known as estate administration pursuant to intestacy and often includes obtaining a Grant of Letters of Administration.
If your loved one made a valid Will, and you are named the Executor, this means you are responsible for handling your loved one’s affairs upon their death. This includes calling in all assets and paying any debts, as well as complying with legal requirements. This is known as estate administration pursuant to a Will and may include obtaining a Grant of Probate of the Will.
If you believe you are entitled to receive a benefit from your loved one’s estate, it is vital you obtain legal advice as soon as possible as there are time limits that will impact your ability to apply for benefit.
We can be as involved in handling your loved one’s estate as you require. From simple matters such as reading the Will or giving general advice, to more complex affairs such as obtaining a Grant of Probate to navigating complicated family dynamics, we can help you.

- Initial Advice
