Deceased Estates / Probate
Estate law is the process of distributing a person’s assets in the terms set out in their will after they have died. The person listed in the Will as executor is the person is responsible for the deceased’s assets and liabilities being paid out and then divided to the beneficiaries.
While dividing up an estate may seem simple at first glance, the fact is that there is a legal process that must occur before the assets can be divided to those listed in the Will and known as beneficiaries.
The law requires that a person must apply to the court to confirm that the Will is genuine and also the last Will of the deceased. Once this is completed all the assets must be collected, debts paid and remainder divided between the beneficiaries.
