Wills with no Executor 2023 - who is entitled to administer the estate? - 15 June 2023 (On Demand)


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 not able to apply for probate what is the proper course of action? The process of establishing who is entitled to obtain a grant to administer the estate in the absence of an executor can be fraught with difficulty. The evidence required in support of an application in such cases can vary markedly depending on the circumstances.

The appropriate documentation must be carefully considered to ensure that the relevant evidence is provided to fit the circumstances.

This webinar is very detailed and will provide an in-depth look at the required documentation and guidance on best practice for applying for letters of administration with will annexed together with excellent precedents for future use from esteemed High Court Registrar and Specialist Technical Advisor, John Earles.

The webinar is very practical and in future you will be able to deal with these situations with ease so that applications are correct and accepted for filing in the first instance. The current rejection rate for such applications is very high.

Webinar attendees will learn in detail how to determine the requirements for the various circumstances that can arise which necessitate this type of proceeding.
