If you need advice from a probate lawyer in the Melbourne area, contact our experienced team of Probate and Estate Administration lawyers at either our Richmond or Thornbury offices.
At David Davis and Associates, we deal with deceased estate matters on a daily basis: Grants of Probate (when there is a Will) as well as Grants of Letters of Administration on intestacy (when there is no Will). These formal documents show the Supreme Court of Victoria’s approval for the administration of the deceased’s estate by the Executor appointed by the Will, or where there is no Will by the Administrator (such as a family member or other authorised person). The duty of the Executor or Administrator is to call in the assets of the estate and distribute them in accordance with the Will or in accordance with the law of intestacy where there is no Will. To avoid Executors or Administrators from being held personally liable for financial loss or damage to the estate, we ensure that that the estate is administered according to the law and that Executors or Administrators perform their duties.
However, we understand that often the last thing many of our clients want to do is to wade through legal jargon and understand your rights and obligations when dealing with the loss of a loved one. We understand that this process can be a very sensitive and difficult one, and our clients appreciate our probate lawyers being able to advise and assist them to make the legalities clear and manageable.
On occasions, probate will not be necessary to administer the deceased estate, such as when spouses held joint ownership in properties or when that value of the assets of the estate may be small. If you would like to know whether a Grant of Representation (Probate or Letters of Administration) are required, please call David Davis & Associates to speak with our team of professional estate lawyers.
If you like to speak to one of our team of estate professionals that Melbourne residents trust, then contact David Davis & Associates at either Thornbury or Richmond today.
