Normally, the person appointed as the executor of the will is a relative or close friend of the deceased and we understand that it can be a very difficult and emotional time for the executor and the family.

We can help you navigate your duties as an executor and apply for a grant of probate and administer the estate.

A grant of probate by the Supreme Court of NSW authorises the executor to administer the estate in accordance with the will.

Sometimes applying for probate may not be straightforward, for example when:

  • there may not be a will, in which case the rules of intestacy will apply
  • there may be issues with the signing or formality of the will
  • the original will may be unable to be located
  • the size and nature of the assets of the estate may mean that probate is not required


We can provide our advice based on the circumstances of the estate.
