When a person dies all assets are frozen pending probate or letters of administration. It is the duty of the executor in a valid will to deal with this property by a process known as probate.
A grant of probate is an order made by the NSW Supreme Court confirming a persons last will and testament is valid. It also confirms that the executor to whom probate is granted is the authorised administer of the estate.
If a person dies without a will, they process is not one of probate but rather letters of administration.

Our fees are fixed in nature in accordance with the scaled fees found in Schedule 3 of the Legal Profession uniform Law Application Regulation which are based off the value of the estate.
