Deceased Estates

Acting as an executor of an estate can be a rewarding task but it can also be a complex, stressful and an expensive one if not handled appropriately.

Due to an increase in wealth, the number of ways people ‘own’ their assets, and the rise of blended families, people’s affairs are becoming more complex. But even without complexity, being an executor of a person’s estate can be challenging given the risk of personal liability.

We guide clients through the process of managing a deceased estate. We know when an estate can be managed without an application for a grant of probate, and we know when it will be necessary to apply to the Supreme Court for a grant of probate or letters of administration.

Sullivan Braham provides legal advice and representation in relation to deceased estates including:

  • Applications to the Supreme Court for grants of probate and letters of administration
  • Administration of deceased estates, including estates with related trusts and self-managed superannuation funds 
  • Applications to the Trustee of Superannuation funds for death benefit payments
  •  Applications for life insurance
  • Management of life interests
