Losing a loved one is an emotional time and acting as executor can be stressful and confusing. Rockliffs Lawyers in Sydney have vast experience in assisting executors to manage their duties and can help ease the burden by guiding you through the process of applying for probate, and in administering the estate once probate has been granted.
Probate is the process of the Supreme Court of New South Wales recognising a deceased’s Will, formalising and identifying all assets and liabilities of a deceased and granting an executor the power to deal with the deceased’s assets and pay their bills.
If a deceased did not leave a will, our experienced lawyers can assist you in applying to the Supreme Court for letters of administration. Our lawyers can assist you and advise you through the process including identifying the person or persons who are entitled to seek letters of administration, preparing and undertaking the necessary legal work in obtaining letters of administration and thereafter administering an estate.
The service offered by Rockliffs Lawyers Sydney does not end once probate or letters of administration have been granted. If required and desired we will assist in administering the estate including communicating with financial institutions, transferring ownership of property and shares and communicating with life insurance or superannuation firms thereby easing the stress during the difficult time.
Our lawyers will work with you quickly and compassionately to ensure the process is cost-effective and efficient.
