We always recommend keeping your will up to date as it makes distributing your estate far easier on your beneficiaries in what is already a hard enough time as it is.

LETTERS OF ADMINISTRATION
In the some-what complicated event that a valid will has not been left, Mann Legal can assist you with applying for Letters of Administration to the Supreme Court of Victoria. In these circumstances, there is legislation that details how an estate may be distributed and by whom. The Supreme Court can appoint an Administrator to distribute the estate under the Wills, Probate and Administration Act 1898.

PROBATE
Mann Legal can help you apply to the Supreme Court of Victoria for Probate in instances where there is a valid will and you have been nominated as Executor of that will. The Supreme Court can then grant probate which authorises you to distribute the deceased estate in accordance with the provisions of the will.
