When someone passes away it is necessary to deal with the complex task of collecting and distributing the assets from a deceased person’s estate.
If a person left a will appointing an executor, then it may be necessary to obtain a Grant of Probate from the Supreme Court to deal with certain assets.
If a person passed away without a will, that is, intestate, their estate will be distributed pursuant to the intestacy provisions contained in the Succession Act 1981 (Qld) and it will be necessary to obtain Letters of Administration from the Supreme Court.
