Our experienced solicitors can provide legal advice and representation in the following areas:
Estate law can cause confusion when issues arise. Many executors or beneficiaries of wills do not know their rights and can face irrational opposition in these instances.
Templar Legal are here to help set everything straight and ensure that our clients are treated fairly.
At Templar Legal, we pride ourselves on our personal and commercial approach to meeting our client’s needs and expectations, ensuring the best possible outcome in the shortest time frame possible. This keeps legal costs to a minimum.
We work with Executors to do as little or as much of the Estate’s administration as they want.
It is the role of the Executor to obtain the details of the Estate necessary to properly administer it.
Following the death of a person, Probate or Letters of Administration, cannot be obtained until:
Usually the funeral director will arrange to obtain a copy for you or the next of kin. It can take up to 3 weeks after the funeral to obtain a copy of the Death Certificate and longer if there is to be a Coronial Inquiry. If you have not received a copy of the Death Certificate within 4 weeks, please do not hesitate to contact Templar Legal and we can assist you in obtaining a copy. Alternatively, you may wish to contact the Registrar General’s Office to obtain a copy.
Templar Legal's fees for personal injury matters are typically deferred until the conclusion of your claim. In most cases, if we are unable to get compensation for your injuries, there will be no legal fees charged.
Most banks or financial institutions will allow payment from any existing account of the deceased person if given a copy of the funeral invoice. Alternatively, check to see if the Deceased was a member of a Funeral Plan.
Templar Legal has fixed fees for most uncontested Supreme Court (Probate Registry) Probate Applications. Please contact our offices to discuss.
These fixed fees vary depending on the type of application to be made by the Court and the precise content of the Death Certificate and/or Will. Please contact Templar Legal if you require more information about our Deceased Estates services or would like to make an appointment with one of our solicitors.
