Letters of Administration
In the some-what complicated event that a valid will has not been left or the appointed executors are unable or unwilling to act, Richard Harvey & Associates can assist you with applying for Letters of Administration to the Supreme Court of NSW. In these circumstances, there is legislation that details how an estate may be distributed and by whom. The Supreme Court can appoint an Administrator to distribute the estate under Chapter 4 of the Succession Act 2006.
Family Provision Actions
If you expected to be a beneficiary of a will and are not or expected to be more fully provided for if a named beneficiary, you can make a claim for provision from the estate under Chapter 3 of the Succession Act 2006, provided you can satisfy eligibility criteria and establish reasons as to why you should be considered for provision from the deceased estate.
Richard Harvey & Associates can help you apply to the Supreme Court of NSW for Probate in instances where there is a valid will and you have been nominated as Executor of that will. The Supreme Court can then grant probate which authorises you to distribute the deceased estate in accordance with the provisions of the will.
