Grant of Probate & Administration of Deceased Estates
After death, your executor (or administrator if you do not have a will) will need to make an application to the Supreme Court of Western Australia Probate Office for a grant of probate if you have a will or letters of administration if you do not have a will. We are experienced in preparing applications for probate and assisting executors and administrators making enquiries as to the deceased assets and liabilities which are required to be set out in the application. Please contact us for a fixed fee estimate if you require assistance with any type of application to the Probate Office or require advice as to the process and type of application required.
We also advise and assist executors and trustees with the administration of a deceased estate. This encompasses the administration of the deceased estate itself after the grant of probate or letters of administration have been issued. Administration of a deceased estate includes such things as filing of accounts, reporting to beneficiaries, collecting assets, paying debts and distributing the estate to beneficiaries. Please contact us to discuss your requirements further.
