Deceased Estate Administration

Deceased Estate Administration

There are many benefits to seeking the appointment of an expert administrator by the Court in order to manage the affairs of a deceased estate, especially in circumstances where;

(i) the financial affairs of the deceased were complex,

(ii) where there is a dispute between the executor/executrix and beneficiaries of the estate and/or any claimants pursuant to the Family Provisions Act 1982;

(iii) where the estate may in fact be insolvent, or is likely to become so.

Executors who breach their duties may find themselves personally exposed should they inadvertently breach the complex legislation surrounding the administration of deceased estates, or find themselves embroiled in lengthy and costly litigation.

If you are involved in such a matter, you should contact us to determine whether our expertise can assist you in expeditiously resolving such matters.
