Deceased Estates

When someone close to you dies, you may be named the Executor of their Will and, as such, have a number of duties to undertake.

For most people, this is a very new experience. With many estates, the process is quite simple and straight forward. But for some, there can be significant complexities and you may find it comforting to have a trusted advisor work through your duties with you.

How can we help you in relation to a deceased estate?

  • Non-contested Estate Administration
  • Application for Probate
  • Application for Letters of Administration with the Will annexed (where the person leaves a Will, but there is no executor)

  • Application where the exact date of death of a deceased person is unknown or where the person is missing or presumed dead
