Letters of Administration
Where a person passes away without a Will (or without a valid Will), there is a need to appoint a relevant person to administer the estate. Normally this would be the responsibility of the Executor who is appointed in the Will. Letters of administration may also be required where the Executor in a Will is unable or unwilling to act.
In order for the estate to be administered, you need to apply to the Supreme Court for letters of administration. This concept refers to the certificate that the Supreme Court will issue that provides a relevant person with the authority to act as the Executor for the estate to enable to estate to be administered.
