In cases where a deceased has left assets but there is no will it is incumbent on one of the potential beneficiaries to obtain a grant of letters of administration and to thereafter liquidate the assets, pay off the debts and distribute the remainder in accordance with the intestacy rules which set out the order of priority according to relationships which are detailed in the intestacy rules.
In general terms the duties of an administrator or executor are extremely similar in that both must assess and protect assets, pay of debts and tax and thereafter distribute in accordance with the law which can either be outlined in the will or where there is no will in accordance with the intestacy rules. In all cases the representative remains personally liable and must act diligently and honestly or the beneficiaries would otherwise be entitled to instruct a probate solicitor to take legal action against the executor or administrator.INDEPENDANT LAWYER HELPLINE: ☎ 1800 455 260
