Not sure what Probate is?

When someone has died, the Will nominates one or more Executors who are responsible for managing the deceased persons estate, payment of liabilities and distribution of the estate’s assets to beneficiaries according to the Will.

Probate is the name given to the legal process of verifying and registering the last Will of a deceased person in the Supreme Court.

Once Grant of Probate has been obtained, the estates assets will be transferred into the Executor’s name so they may carry out their duties.

Most organisations (e.g. banks, superannuation funds) who hold assets of a deceased person require a copy of the Probate before they will agree to transfer assets to the Executor or beneficiaries.
