Administration of Estates
When a person dies, there needs to be a proper administration of estate . If they die leaving a valid Will, then the first step, generally, is to obtain a Grant of Probate.
Administration of Estates No Will
If a person dies without a Will, they are known to have died “intestate”. In those circumstances, Letters of Administration need to be obtained from the Court in order to attend to the division of the assets of the deceased.
Administration of Estates and Probate
There are special rules set down in the Administration and Probate Act as to how assets are to be divided if no Will has been left.
