Scott Legal acts for executors/trustees/administrators:
Probate is the court issued document giving the executor authority to carry out the administration of the will. Until this is obtained, the executor cannot transfer any of the assets to the beneficiaries listed in the will or next of kin.
At this sensitive time, we can help you with all of the legalities and make this a stress free process:
- Applying for Probate (if the deceased had a will)
- Applying for Letters of Administration (if the deceased died without leaving a will)
- Assisting executors with carrying out their duties under a deceased estate
We can also assist with disputes regarding challenging a will.
