What is a deceased estate
Purpose of a grant of probate
In NSW, if a person passes away without leaving behind a valid will, their estate will be distributed according to the rules of intestacy set out in the Succession Act 1981. In such cases, a Letter of Administration is required to be granted by the Supreme Court of NSW to appoint an administrator to manage the deceased person’s estate. The administrator must be a person who is entitled to share in the estate, such as a spouse, child or other close relative, and they have the responsibility to collect and distribute the assets of the estate in accordance with the intestacy rules. The process of obtaining a Letter of Administration can be complex, and it is recommended to seek the advice of a legal professional who specializes in estate administration.
Further Information TBA.
Why do you need a grant of probate?
- Joint tenants and tenants in common
- Searches must be done to locate the original will
- A copy of a will is considered a limited grant of probate

We used Spencer Lawyers for Probate etc for my late father's estate. Knowing nothing of what had to be done, we left it in the capable hands of Spencer Lawyers. The process went smoothly and we were kept updated all throughout it from start to finish. We have also used Spencer Lawyers for our own wills to make it easy for our kids. I would highly recommend using Spencer Lawyers for any of your legal needs.
