Probate

Have you been nominated as an Executor of an Estate? With our “no surprises” fixed fee we can make this a simple, stress free process.

Did you know your tasks may include:

  1. Publish your intention to apply for probate on the Supreme Court of NSW website
  2. Lodge specific forms i.e. proof of death at the Probate Registry of the Supreme Court
  3. Obtain probate
  4. Make an inventory of property – List everything the deceased owned, payments or assets they were entitled to
  5. Sell deceased assets – so money can be divided amongst the beneficiaries
  6. Contact banks/companies if necessary
  7. Pay deceased expenses and debts
  8. Open a bank account in the name of the estate to place their money into.
  9. Pay funeral expenses
  10. Administer expenses
  11. Pay outstanding tax
  12. Prepare a detailed distribution report once you have sold the deceased’s assets and paid all their debts
  13. Give this report to each of the beneficiaries when you pay them their share of estate
  14. Once 6 months has passed since the deceased died you may give the deceased money and possessions away as provided by the Will.

As you can see the list of duties you undertake in your role as executor is quiet complex and time consuming.

We can take the stress out of this already difficult time. Call us today on (02) 6621 2742.
