Reimbursement of Probate Costs from the Estate

Remember that probate costs such as the costs of our Fixed Fee Probate Service and the South Australia Supreme Court’s filing fee can be reimbursed from the deceased’s estate once a grant of probate is obtained.

Estate Administration

So you’ve got your grant of probate – now what?

Once the South Australia Supreme Court has issued a grant of probate, the executor – or other relevant person – should proceed to administer the deceased’s estate. Estate administration involves winding up the deceased’s affairs, paying their debts, and distributing any remaining assets.

Depending on the size and complexity of the deceased’s estate, administration can be time and resource intensive. It’s common for the executor (or a loved one) to seek the assistance of a lawyer to administer the estate. Gathered Here offers quality, reasonably-priced assistance with your estate administration needs. Get an obligation-free quote now.
