In the event a person passes away without leaving a will, the family members of the deceased or any person interested in the estate can apply for the Grant of Letters of Administration from the High Court to administer the said estate.

The High Court has the discretion as to whom to appoint as the administrator of a deceased person. In granting such administration, the High Court will take into account the rights of all persons interested in the estate.

We advise and assist our clients on a step-by-step basis to ensure that they fully understand the duty of becoming an administrator and the legal procedure involved in applying for a Grant of Letters of Administration from the High Court.
