Deceased estates

When a person dies their assets are managed by an administrator or executor of the Will. Assets can range from real estate and investments to cash and personal property. The role of the executor is to manage assets according to the terms defined in the Will. Some of these responsibilities include:

  • taking stock of the deceased's assets
  • administering legal arrangements such as shares, trusts and properties
  • managing tax returns and liabilities
  • filing for application of Probate through the courts to legally finalise the deceased estate
  • distributing assets to beneficiaries based on the Will or applicable intestacy laws
