Deceased Estates Services
Grant of Probate
To be authorised to administer the estate the executor must obtain a legal document called a grant of probate. To prove the Will, your lawyer will lodge the original Will, death certificate, affidavit signed by the executor, a statement of assets and liabilities of the deceased, motion paper and other court documents with the Supreme Court of Western Australia.
Letters of Administration
If there is no will or the executors in the will are unable to act your lawyer will apply for letters of administration. If there is no will the next of kin of the deceased usually has to apply to the Supreme Court for a grant of letters of administration. One or more applicants can be appointed as administrators by the court.
