Estates & Probate

estates and probateWhen someone passes away, the property , assets and debts they had at the date of their death is known as the ‘estate’ of the deceased.

If the deceased left a Will, we at Western Sydney Legal Practice, will assist the executor in applying to the Supreme Court of New South Wales for a Grant of Probate. Probate is an order of the Supreme Court of New South Wales officially approving a Will. The Grant of Probate allows the executor to move forward with the administering of the Will of the deceased.

If the deceased did not leave a Will, we are able to assist you in the making of an application for Letters of Administration to the Supreme Court of New South Wales.

Similar to a Grant of Probate, Letters of Administration with allow the Administrator to move forward in dealing with the estate of the deceased.

Sometimes there is no requirement to obtain Probate and you may be able to deal with the estate without applying to the Court. We will be able to establish whether you are required to seek Probate.

If no Probate is required, we can assist by the transferring of real property of the deceased into the legally entitled party and also assist with the finalisation of the estate by selling of shares of closing bank accounts of the deceased.

Our lawyers at Western Sydney Legal Practice work day in, day out in matter of deceased estates and we can alert you to potential issues that can arise and support you with confident decision making as an executor or administrator.
