NSW Probate

What is Probate?

Probate gives you (the executor) the power to deal with the assets and liabilities of the deceased.

Various organisations like banks and real estate services ask for the Grant of Probate before they hand over assets which they hold for the deceased person.

Probate applications can be confusing, especially when your still grieving the loss of a loved one. Our Advocate can assist you with probate.
