Disaster – A will but no executor 2020 - 5 November 2020 (On Demand)


Who can apply and how - Letters of administration with the will annexed

When a deceased person has left a will but there is no executor named in the will or the executor who is named is disqualified from applying or for a number of reasons is not able to apply for probate what is the proper course of action? The way forward can be fraught with difficulty. The evidence required in support of an application can vary markedly depending on the circumstances.

The relevant documentation must be carefully considered to ensure that only necessary matters are covered and superfluous detail is omitted.

This webinar will provide an in-depth look at the required documentation and guidance on best practice for applying for letters of administration with will annexed and will provide practical tips from esteemed High Court Registrar and Sheriff, John Earles, for getting applications right the first time.


5 November 2020


Webinar attendees will learn in detail how to determine the requirements for the various circumstances that can arise which necessitate this type of proceeding. This will build confidence for practitioners in the preparation of their documents and ensure that the application can be determined by the Registrar on the first consideration, avoiding wasting time and unnecessary expense.
