Deceased Estates

It’s always a painful and challenging time when a person dies. However during this period it’s important for someone to attend to the issue of the person’s will (if they left one) and their estate.

The duties required in relation to the deceased person’s estate may be very simple, or they may be complicated, emotional and time-consuming. There are legal rules and obligations that must be followed which may include an application for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration from the Supreme Court.
