The process of dealing with a loved one’s estate can be summarised as follows:
• Identify and value the assets and liabilities
• Prepare for and obtaining a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration
• Settle the liabilities of the estate, including all tax liabilities
• Distributing the estate in accordance with the terms of the Will.
If there is no Will then the estate is distributed in accordance with the Probate and Administration Act NSW.
Guaranteed NSW Probate Fixed-Fee Quotation:
People need certainty when it comes to the issue of legal fees. Alan Rigas Solicitors provide their service on a fixed fee for non-contentious probate applications.
Our NSW Probate Solicitors will give you an accurate fixed-fee estimate before you commit yourself. This estimate will be provided once the issues of the estate are clarified so that you are aware of what work is required and will need to be undertaken.
The quoted fees will not apply if the Will is contested (this means simply if someone disputes the Will). Also you should be aware if a house in the estate needs to be sold, normal Conveyancing charges will apply.
