COMMON QUESTIONS

 

What is probate?. . .

Probate is the authority given by the Court that allows an Executor of a Will to deal with a deceased's assets. Probate is not always but is usually required. There is no law that says an Executor has to get probate. However, most institutions need this before they can allow someone to deal with the property of a deceased person. If property is held in joint names, then probate is not required as title automatically passes to one owner if the other owner dies.

How do I get probate?. . .

The Executors need to submit an 'Application for Probate,' together with the original Will to the Supreme Court. You must be an Executor named in the Will of the deceased in order to apply. If you are not the only Executor named in the Will, then you should contact the other Executor(s) as any decisions must be made together. Not all of the Executors need to apply. This is called a 'renunciation of probate' and means that the person is rejecting their right to administer the Will.

Do I have to get probate? . . .

Probate is not always but usually is required to manage a deceased estate, depending on the size of the estate and how the assets were held. You should make enquiries with the appropriate institutions to see whether a grant of probate is required. Probate will also protect the beneficiaries named in the Will as it certifies the validity of the Will and its contents.

Amongst other things, like arranging the funeral, you will need to get probate before you can manage the deceased's estate, such as accessing bank accounts or transferring property. You need to carry out the deceased's wishes as set out in the Will as soon as possible.

Can I get Probate if I am not the Executor named in the Will? . . .

No. You must be one of the Executor(s) named in a valid Will to get Probate. If you are not one of the Executor(s) but you are the closest living relative, you may still be able to obtain an authority to manage the estate. This type of authority is called a grant of Letters of Administration.

Can I use a photocopy of the Will? . . .

No. If you cannot find the original Will, you can't apply for probate. You should be very careful with the original Will. Do not remove staples or bindings from and do not attach, staple or pin anything to the Will.

What details do I need to complete the Online application? . . .

In order to complete the probate online application, it will be useful if you have gathered some of details first, such as the names and contact details of all Executors named in the Will and what the Executor intends to do in relation to their responsibility as Executor. The details of the deceased, such as date of birth and details of death A list of the deceased’s assets and liabilities (for all states except QLD). For NSW and NT applications, details of the Beneficiaries named and their entitlements under the Will.

What happens once I submit the online form? . . .

Once you have submitted your Quick Laws Probate Online Application, it will then be necessary for you to sign the forms, place any required notices, submit the forms to the Supreme Court and pay the Court fee. Your kit includes a step-by-step guide written in plain language to help you file your application.
