Deceased Estate Administration Services

This is crucial in interpreting the will and ensuring compliance with QLD-specific estate laws. Legal representation is vital in case of disputes or challenges to the will.

Obtaining probate is a key step in estate administration. This service involves preparing and filing the necessary documents with the Supreme Court of Queensland to validate the will and authorize the executor to administer the estate.

This involves identifying, collecting, and managing the deceased’s assets within QLD, including bank accounts, real estate, and personal property. It is a critical step in ensuring that the assets are secured and managed properly.

Settling the deceased’s debts, including any outstanding taxes, loans, or bills, is essential. This might also involve negotiations with creditors and ensuring that all liabilities are lawfully settled.

This service ensures that the assets of the deceased are distributed according to the will (or, if there is no will, according to QLD’s intestacy laws). It includes transferring titles and ownership of properties and assets.

Keeping accurate and detailed records of all transactions and actions taken during the estate administration is essential for transparency and legal compliance. This is particularly important for tax purposes and in case of any audits or legal inquiries.

I am so glad to have used Walker Pender Lawyers to help me prepare my Will. Kevin Murray was extremely thorough and very professional at all stages of Will preparation. He clearly explained all legal terms as well as the implications of clauses in the will. The information was detailed and in lay terms. The staff were wonderful and helpful. Thank you for making the process easy and comfortable .

I cannot speak highly enough of Walker Pender. I recently dealt with Rhonda Jones who managed my conveyancing following a property settlement. She was incredibly efficient, ensuring we met all the deadlines, while providing compassion and understanding. The process went so smoothly thanks to Rhonda and the team. I had previously been to WPG for will and estate planning. My experience was so positive that I went back for conveyancing. I cannot fault them. Efficient, cost effective and personal.

I had the pleasure of working with Rhonda on two separate occasions, both rather life-changing situations. Her friendly, welcoming manner and her calm demeanor put me at ease every time. She easily and comfortably answered any and all questions I had.The other ladies that worked there too, were all lovely and approachable as well. Would definitely work with Pender Walker Ipswich again should the need arise.

I highly recommend Andrew Huntley at Walker Pender. Andrew took the time to explain everything to me, cared how I was feeling, and ensured that I’m well set up for the future with my Will, EPOA, and Binding Death Benefits. I’m in good hands with Andrew and Walker Pender.

Deceased Estate

The deceased person’s estate comprises their entirety of assets and liabilities, or obligations, at the time of their passing.

Assets can include:

  • Bank accounts
  • Shares
  • Superannuation and life insurance policies
  • Real estate – such as a nursing home bond or retirement village lease
  • Personal belongings, such as furniture and jewellery.
  • Liabilities can include mortgages, credit cards and personal loans. Usually liabilities are paid out of the estate assets before they are distributed to beneficiaries.

It is the duty of a lawful personal representative (also known as an executor or administrator) to carry out the administration of an estate. If any, the executor will be designated in the individual’s testamentary document.

The legal personal representative ensures the execution of the last desires of the deceased.

Just some of their responsibilities include:

  • Arranging the funeral
  • Obtaining a death certificate
  • Applying for probate or letters of administration
  • Paying debts and income tax following the state or territory
  • Informing the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and other government bodies
