DECEASED ESTATE ADMINISTRATION SOLICITORS ROCKHAMPTON

Your Executors named in your Will are the persons responsible to carry out your wishes identified in your Will as well as to attend to all tasks to finalise your personal and property interests.

These tasks include:

  • Making funeral arrangements
  • Protecting your assets, including valuables and animals
  • Paying debts and taxes from your money or property
  • Sale of any property necessary to administer your estate
  • Distribution of assets as stipulated in your Will

When someone dies without leaving a Will or without nominating an Executor, an Administrator is appointed by the Court.  This process is called a Grant of Administration.  Legislation identifies persons who can be appointed as an Administrator and the order of priority in which these persons are appointed.  Usually it is your spouse or family member.  The Administrator is responsible for the same tasks as an Executor appointed by a Will.

The Succession Act stipulates who will benefit from your estate if you do not leave a valid Will.
