Estate Administration

The job of a Legal Personal Representative, whether an executor or administrator, can be a daunting one. Applying for a grant of probate or letters of administration is only the start of an executor’s responsibilities. From collecting assets and paying debts to distributing gifts to beneficiaries and possibly dealing with any disputes, a personal representative must navigate a minefield of duties and obligations. We are here to help.

Executor Advisory Services

We help executors and administrators with any and all aspects of administering an estate. Unlike many estate lawyers who are all or nothing, we leave it up to you decide just which tasks you would like us to assist with. Some of these include: 

  • Advising on the proper construction of the will
  • Advising on executor’s legal obligations
  • Notifying and identifying beneficiaries
  • Transmission of property into executor’s name and assistance with sale
  • Collection of bank accounts and other assets
  • Obtaining nursing home/aged care refunds
  • Assisting with superannuation and life insurance claims
  • Guidance as to distributions
  • Finalising estate accounts

Administration Disputes

Unfortunately disputes can and do arise during the administration of an estate. These can be between beneficiaries and/or between beneficiaries and executors concerning the administration of an estate. Such disputes might be over any number of things but whatever happens, we are here to help. Some issues that might be encountered include:

  • Delays in administering the estate
  • Disagreements regarding interpretation of the will
  • Executor or administrator refusing to act or cannot be located
  • Disagreements with the decision of an executor or administrator
