ESTATE MATTERS -PROBATE / ADMINISTRATION
If you have been appointed an executor to an estate, we can help you with the tasks of administering the estate.
In most cases a grant of probate is required from the Supreme Court before an executor can access the real property, shares and bank accounts of the deceased person and deal with them in accordance with their will.
We are able to advise you of all the procedural matters involved and handle the probate application to ensure that probate is granted without undue delay. We are also able to assist you in the realisation of the assets and the distribution of the proceeds in accordance with the deceased’s instructions.
Where the deceased failed to leave a will or there is a concern with the validity of a will we are able to seek Administration of the estate. Expert knowledge and advice is required in these situations.
We are also able to assist in the situation where you feel you have been dealt unfairly in a will and wish to contest this on reasonable and just grounds.
Please call us so we may discuss your particular problem or requirement.
