When someone dies, the deceased person’s assets are called the estate. The Executor is nominated in the Will and is responsible for administering the estate as per the instructions in the Will.
As Victoria’s leading estate administrator, we can help in multiple ways. We can be nominated as the Executor in the Will or take on the role from the existing Executor for end-to end administration of the estate. Alternatively, we also help Executors who wish to remain in the role but need assistance with specific tasks.
Things you need to know
Being an Executor can be overwhelming and it is understandable if you feel lost as to where to start.
Our checklist has been created to help an Executor who is about to obtain a grant of probate or an executor who is already in the process of administering an estate.
What the checklist includes
In the downloadable PDF Executor Checklist you will find:
- An outline of the roles and legal responsibilities of an Executor
- A detailed checklist of the various estate administration tasks
- Information about applying for a grant of probate
