Letters of Administration Application
The Will and Probate Centre will help you grant your Letters of Administration
The Brook Legal | Will and Probate Centre specialises in drafting and amending wills, obtaining grants of probate, powers of attorney, handling inheritance claims, and of course drawing up Letters of Administration (LOA).
What are Letters of Administration?
Letters of Administration are granted by the Supreme Court to an appropriate person, usually a beneficiary of the deceased estate. This may happen when:
- The deceased person died without a will
- The deceased person did not appoint an executor
- The executor is unable or unwilling to apply for a grant of probate
For wills drawn up in Perth, the Supreme Court of Western Australia is responsible for the granting of Letters of Administration. Contact us for more information.
A beneficiary of the will (usually the spouse, de facto partner, or next of kin) can apply for the Letters of Administration. If the application for the letters of administration is successful, the Supreme Court of Western Australia will appoint the applicant as the Administrator. The Administrator is then granted the LOA which gives them the authority to deal with the estate.
