When administering a Deceased Estate, there are lots of traps for the unwary involving:
- Contested estates
- Inheritance Family Provision claims
- Protected Estates, dealings with Public Trustee;
- Guardianship hearings
- Community treatment orders
- Financial administration orders
This is especially the case if the deceased dies without leaving a Will, which is called intestacy.
When that happens, the government of the state where you die will determine what will happen to your assets.
Don’t let this happen to your family. Make sure you have created a modern integrated estate plan to protect yourself, your family and your assets. If you are left with the responsibility of administering the deceased estate of someone else, make sure you get timely advice from a lawyer who specialises in this area of law.
