If you own real estate or other significant assets then a Grant of Probate will be required by your executor(s) to carry out the wishes in your Will.

Probate is a document issued by the Supreme Court of South Australia proving your last Will and formally authorising your executor(s) to carry out their duties according to law.

An application for a grant of Probate can be complex and difficult. If you are an executor named in a Will you should consult one of our experienced lawyers to assist you to undertake the process.

If you do not leave a Will then a Grant of Letters of Administration may be required instead of a Grant of Probate to administer your assets upon death.
