About the Series

The webinar series Estate Administration: Practice Procedure and Process provides attendees with practical insights into selected aspects of probate and administration; how to address problems; how to determine what evidence must be produced and circumstances when it is not required.

The series has been developed for those legal professionals who are directly involved in dealing with clients, determining the nature of the application required to be made, and in the preparation of applications with supporting documentation.

About the ONDEMAND webinar

Applying for a court order to administer a deceased estate is often complicated - particularly when there is no executor available to apply for a grant of probate. In circumstances where there is a will but the executor has not been named, or the executor has died (or is unwilling to act), the application process often heightens concerns for those involved in the preparation of the application.

The application process for Letters of Administration with the will annexed differs from probate applications and knowing what matters need to be considered and addressed and supported by evidence, or indeed omitted, when making an application, is not always clear.

This ONDEMAND webinar examines, and address, the following aspects of applying for Letters of Administration with the will annexed

how to determine who is entitled to apply;

  • the form of the application;
  • clearing off other beneficiaries;
  • whether it is necessary to obtain consents;
  • establishing the relationship status of spouse, civil union partner or de facto partners and implications for notice of choice of option A or B;
  • making Status of Children Act inquiries;
  • establishing entitlement to apply when the person entitled is incapacitated or predeceased the deceased;
  • obtaining grants for use and benefit another person or their estate;
  • completing the affidavit in support of the application

Learning Outcomes

Having viewed this ONDEMAND webinar, attendees will be able to

  • recognise key requirements for the preparation of a valid will
