Estate Administration – Probate or Intestacy
When somebody dies there are a number of tasks that have to be completed. If a person dies leaving a valid Will, then the named Executors assume this responsibility. In the absence of a valid Will, the individual is said to have died “Intestate” and the Intestacy Rules decide who can be appointed as the Administrators of the estate.
The role of Executor or Administrator is an onerous one. The deceased’s estate may consist of valuable or complicated matters and an Executor or Administrator is individually liable for administering the estate appropriately.
At Legacy Estates, we wholeheartedly understand the loss of a family member or close friend is an extremely hard and emotive time. If you need to apply for probate then we are here to help.
