Letters of Administration
There a two types of applications for letters of administration:
- By a person who is not an executor named in the deceased’s will (the will needs to be attached);
- By an interested party where the deceased did not leave a valid will.
Is a court order which confirms that the will is valid and that the executor/s have the right to administer the estate.
An executor is a person appointed by the will to administer the estate. A will can appoint more than one executor. An executor is in charge of making sure the deceased’s’ debts are paid and that their assets/possessions go where they wanted them to.
An executor can choose to remove themselves by signing a formal ‘renunciation’ and filing it in the Supreme Court of NSW.
Our fees are charged as per Legal Profession Regulation 2005.
