Our ACT Estates publications have been enhanced to include new bespoke precedents – Costs agreement – Probate and Costs agreement – Letters of Administration, which can be found in folder A. Getting the matter underway in each of the respective publications.
These estate specific costs agreements are customised to suit an estate matter:
- listing the work typically carried out;
- listing fees and expenses typically incurred;
- detailing for handy reference in a schedule the Supreme Court filing fees;
- also providing in a schedule the solicitor administration costs that may be applicable.
With so much less work required these custom costs agreements will save you time on every estates matter.
The commentary in both Probate and Letters of Administration on distribution of the estate has also been enhanced to include a new section When can an executor safely distribute? covering the procedural requirements in the ACT to ensure the executor or administrator is protected.
