Executorship & ProbateEnsuring the fair distribution of assets
Executing Wills & Probate
Executing a Will is a complex responsibility that involves realising and distributing a deceased person’s assets according to the wishes they expressed in their Will. The person who undertakes this responsibility is known as the Executor and is appointed to the role by the Will-maker. We strongly recommend that if you are appointed as an Executor, you seek expert legal advice.
At Clancy & Triado, our experienced lawyers can:
- Advise you on the proper execution of your role;
- Advise you on your legal obligations and duties (such as securing properties);
- Advise you on how to minimise any personal liability;
- Ensure appropriate reimbursement for expenses.
Upon your death, our experienced family lawyers can approve your Will on behalf of your Executor by obtaining a Grant of Probate. A Grant of Probate gives the Executor legal power to effectively step into the deceased’s shoes to realise and distribute your assets according to your wishes.
