Applying for Probate and Letters of Administration in ACT

Typically, applying for Probate and Letters of Administration in the ACT involves the following steps:

Step 1

Determining which Grant you need to apply for.

Step 2

Advertising your intention to apply on the Supreme Court website.

Step 3

Completing the necessary documents and forms.

Step 4

Lodging the application with the Supreme Court.

  • This can only be done once the advertisement has been published for 14 clear days and no more than 3 months later.

This process can be overwhelming and confusing, which is why we offer a simple and straightforward way of applying for Probate and Letters of Administration in the ACT. At Probate Consultants, we believe that expert guidance and support should be available to everyone – without the complicated legal jargon, lengthy timeframes and high costs.

Probate Applications in the ACT consist of the following documents:

  • Originating Application
  • Affidavit of Executor
  • Annexure ‘A’ – Certified Copy of Death Certificate
  • Annexure ‘B’ – Inventory of Property
  • Annexure ‘C’ – Notice of Intention to Apply for Probate
  • Affidavit of Search

Probate applications in the ACT can be lodged with the Supreme Court in person or by post. Probate is usually granted within 1-2 weeks of lodgement and the Grant of Probate is collected from the Court by the executors. If, however, there is an issue with the application, the Court will raise a requisition that must be answered before the Grant of Probate is issued.

Probate in the Australian Capital Territory can be daunting for many people, especially considering the strict requirements of the Supreme Court and the various procedural aspects involved. Leave the challenging paperwork and processes to Probate Consultants and mitigate the risk of a requisition (questions raised by the Court).

Thomas is an Australian lawyer (non-practising) who understood first-hand the challenges faced by those required to apply for Probate and Letters of Administration when his grandfather passed away. He was deeply affected after seeing his grandmother struggle with high fees, lack of transparency and a complicated application process.

From this experience, the foundations of Probate Consultants emerged, and this special business was founded with the mission of creating a seamless and affordable Probate and Letters of Administration application process for everyone in Australia.
