What information do I need to make a probate application?

An application for Probate or Letters of Administration is an application to the Supreme Court of Western Australia for a grant of representation of a deceased estate. Once the Court has issued a grant, the applicant will be lawfully entitled to wind up the deceased person’s affairs and distribute their assets in accordance with the terms of the Will or the laws of intestacy.

A probate application must include information about the deceased’s Will, the date and location of their death and a statement of their assets and liabilites. An application for Letters of Administration must set out the deceased’s family tree, the date and location of their death and a statement of their assets and liabilites.
