Grants of Probate and Administration of Estates

The team at Brown McComish Solicitors can assist you with the sometimes difficult task of administering the wishes of your deceased loved ones.

Estate administration
Sometimes the value of an estate doesn’t require the Supreme Court to make a Grant of Probate. In these case, the estate had be distributed relatively quickly, once the assets have been collected by the Trustee. However the task can be difficult and complicated, and the requirement to keep adequate records may be overwhelming. In these cases were are more than happy to assist the process to ensure your deceased loved one’s wishes are carried out.

Grants of Probate
In instances where an estate’s value requires a Grant of Probate, the Executor(s) must apply to the Supreme Court of Victoria for a Grant of representation. Upon obtaining the Grant the Executor can collect the assets held by the estate and distribute them in accordance with the will. The Grant of representation ensures that no hurdles will be faced in releasing certain assets, such as real property.

Letters of Administration
In the event that your deceased loved one has passed away without a will, they have died intestate. This usually requires an application to the Supreme Court to appoint an Administrator of the estate through Letters of Administration. Acting similarly to a Grant of Probate, it then allows the Administrator to collect the assets and distribute them. Depending on your specific circumstances the process may be complex and we are more than happy to assist with the smooth running of your matter to allow you proper room to grieve your loved one carefree.
