Estate Management

Dealing with the loss of a family member is difficult and having to manage the estate can add pressure to an already stressful situation. 

We can help guide you through this difficult period, allowing you the time to grieve, while we take care of all the legal matters.  It can take around 6-12 months to finalise an estate (sometimes even longer) and we will be there to help you throughout that time.

The process of handling an estate includes:

  • Determining what is included in the Estate - assets and debts
  • Getting Court approval to deal with assets
  • Transferring all assets into the executor’s name and paying all debts - including selling property
  • Distributing the estate – any balance left over out of the estate is distributed to beneficiaries.
