Devenish Lawyers act on behalf of executors or administrators in running estates, obtaining grants of Probate and Letters of Administration in the Supreme Court of Victoria Probate Jurisdiction.

Grants of Probate

If the deceased had a Will and owns a property solely or as tenant in common, holds an accommodation bond or has assets of a reasonably high value such as shares and investments worth more than $50,000.00, then Devenish Lawyers will act on behalf of the executors to obtain a grant of Probate in the Supreme Court of Victoria Probate Jurisdiction so that the deceased’s assets may be redeemed.

Grants of Letters of Administration

In the event that the deceased dies without a valid Will then the next-of-kin or an appropriate person may apply for a grant of Letters of Administration in the Supreme Court of Victoria Probate Jurisdiction to deal with the deceased’s assets if the deceased owned a property solely or as tenant in common or has an accommodation bond or other assets such as shares, investments and bank accounts worth in excess of $50,000.00 so that the administrator may redeem the deceased’s assets and deal with the deceased’s estate.  Devenish Lawyers may act on behalf of a proposed administrator to obtain the grant of Letters of Administration and act on behalf of the estate.
