Probate & Letters Of Administration​


Submitting a Grant of Probate

The probate process in New South Wales (NSW) can be daunting, so we have outlined a few important steps to keep in mind. Firstly, obtaining a grant of probate requires you to gather essential documents such as the original Will, the death certificate of the deceased and other related asset documents. The probate application form must then be completed and filed in the Supreme Court of NSW. Once the application is filed, the court will issue a notice to all relevant parties such as beneficiaries and creditors. 


After all parties have been notified, the executor of the Will can apply for a grant of probate. Finally, it is important to remember that the last step is to distribute the estate in accordance with the specific terms of the Will. Need assistance with the probate process in NSW?

Assistance With Probate Applications

If you are the executor of a Will, you will need to apply for a grant of probate from the Supreme Court to give you the legal authority to administer the estate. This time-consuming process involves a lot of paperwork and is the last thing you want to be thinking about when grieving the loss of a loved one.


That’s where we come in. At Hills Solicitors in the Hunter Valley, we are here to assist you with submitting probate applications. Our team will work with you to ensure you have all the required documents and will advise you on whether more information is required to prevent delays to the process.

Why Hire A Solicitor?

Many people don’t realise the importance of hiring a Solicitor to submit a grant of probate. It’s a complex process and it’s easy to make mistakes if you don’t know what you’re doing. Some forms will need to be witnessed and signed by an authorised witness. A Solicitor can walk you through this complicated process and advice you on what’s needed to prevent costly delays during this difficult time.


Once an executor has been granted the authority to deal with the estate, they will also need to follow rules in regard to distributing assets and possessions. A Solicitor can also explain what’s required in order to prevent the executor and beneficiaries from facing penalties.
