Probate

The state of Victoria requires the executor of a will to obtain a grant of probate from the Probate Office of the Supreme Court. This is a process that’s difficult to navigate without professional legal guidance.

After a grant of probate, the executor is able to collect and distribute assets to the beneficiaries, in accordance with the will. This distribution of assets can be especially troublesome for the executor, especially when dealing with large amounts of money and assets.

We can guide and assist executors after probate has been granted to ensure an efficient distribution process.

If no authentic will can be found, our team can assist family members with letters of administration. This allows the next of kin to become the appointed administrator of the estate by the Court in order to collect and distribute the assets of the estate.

At Bayside Wills and Estates, we have over two decades of experience in the administration and distribution of deceased estates in Melbourne. Our professional team can provide you with valuable assistance at every stage of the process, from the application for probate through to the distribution of assets.

What is a Probate?

A probate is permission that the court provides to validate a will before an executor can begin the process.

Why is a grant of probate needed?

Before you can act as an executor of a will, you will need to apply for a grant of probate. It is the initial step in the estate administration process. Having this in place will ensure a more seamless process when collecting and transferring assets that need to be distributed.

Does my will need to be probated?

This will depend on the nature and extent of your estate and assets. An experienced lawyer who specialises in probate and estate administration can provide you with tailored advice on your unique circumstances.
