What is letters of administration?

Letters of administration:

Where nobody has been appointed to be the legal personal representative by a Will, a family member (or other person) may apply to the court to be appointed. These applications are commonly non-contentious. However, there is a long list of criteria which must be met before the court approves the application. The consent of every person eligible to apply for grant must be sought. If the Deceased left an infant child surviving them the application becomes significantly more complex. There are no “pro-forma” application forms for these kinds of applications. It is strongly recommended that you consider advising a specialist to assist you in making intestate applications to the Court.
