Probate procedures 2019 - 23 October 2019 (On Demand)


Where there’s a will the way is not always straightforward.

A practical and informative look at the steps to be taken when a deceased person dies leaving a valid will. It should be a straightforward process but not infrequently problems relating to the process are uncovered when you start to put the documents together for an application and need to overcome these to guarantee a successful application.

This presentation will identify the types of problems you might encounter and how to resolve them.

We will also consider the formalities to observe when preparing a will so that problems may be avoided later on when the application for probate has to be made.

The situations that can be encountered that we will be looking at include:

  • Unwilling executor;
  • Incapable executor;
  • The role of Attorneys and Property Managers;
  • Executor renounces; is there a substituted executor;
  • Executor also a beneficiary dies before applying for grant;
  • Caveat lodged preventing grant of probate being made.

Persons involved with this work at all levels will benefit from attending.


  • How to overcome a range of situations that might be encountered when dealing with a testate estate
  • Acquire a greater understanding of the prescribed forms and the circumstances that relate to the specific forms
  • A higher standard of preparation of documents leading to a reduction in the number of times their documents are rejected
