At By Lawyers we love hearing from our subscribers about content that might improve our publications. A recent subscriber query brought to our attention that, while our WA Estates publication included precedents for notice and consent forms where an application is not made by all executors for probate, it is also sometimes necessary to have the equivalent for letters of administration.
This query prompted a review of the WA Estates Guide by our editorial team, after which By Lawyers have now published the following new or enhanced precedents:
- Notice and consent forms for persons entitled to apply for Letters of Administration;
- Consent form where there is no guarantee;
- Letters to accompany such forms;
- Letter to beneficiary re executor’s claim for commission;
- Motion to dispense with the requirement for guarantees;
- Motion for revocation of grant of probate or administration.
We have also enhanced our WA Estates commentaries with new content including:
- Who is a beneficiary?
- Solicitors dealing with beneficiaries when acting for the estate;
- Challenge to the will by a beneficiary;
- Vesting of a beneficiary’s interest in an estate;
- Right to a copy of a will and inventory of assets.
By Lawyers always endeavour to be responsive to our subscribers’ needs. We hope that these improvements will assist not only the firm which prompted them, but all users of our WA Estates Guide.
