Intestate Estates

When there is no Will, the estate is administered according to the Administration Act (1969) and it will be necessary to apply for Letters of Administration .  Our skilled estates team can help you understand who has the right to apply to be appointed the administrator and can prepare all the necessary documentation required for the application for a grant of Letters of Administration. 

Once Letters of Administration have been granted, we will then advise the administrator as to how the estate must be distributed to the beneficiaries which is specified in the Administration Act.
