Decoding Probate: Your Quick Guide with Funera Sydney

DECODING PROBATE: YOUR QUICK GUIDE WITH FUNERA SYDNEY

THE DURATION OF THE PROBATE PROCESS

When someone passes away, the legal intricacies of managing their estate kick in. Whether it's an Executor of a Will or an Administrator, they step up to navigate the distribution of assets like money and property. If there's a valid Will, the Executor takes charge, aligning with the deceased person's wishes.

Probate is the vital legal process preceding the distribution of assets. Generally, it spans 6-12 months, contingent on the complexity of assets involved, like property transactions.

The Probate Drill

Probate unfolds uniquely based on circumstances and location, typically involving tasks such as:

  • Applying for a Grant of Probate, especially for larger estates
  • Assigning the Executor of the Will
  • Navigating superannuation claims and insurance benefits
  • Managing or selling property without a surviving spouse
  • Wrapping up administrative tasks like licence cancellations and vehicle ownership transfers
  • Handling digital legacies by dealing with social media accounts
  • Settling bills, loans, and financial obligations
  • Creating an inventory of assets and liabilities
  • Identifying beneficiaries and facilitating bequest distributions
  • Submitting tax returns for the deceased person and their estate
  • Managing trusts, investments, and bank accounts
  • Closing accounts
