Who should apply for Letters of Administration?

An estate administrator must be an Australian resident. However, if you are the next-of-kin and you require Letters of Administration in QLD - please let us know.

Part 3 of the Succession Act 1981 determines the person, or people, entitled to applying for Letters of Administration.

If, for instance, a husband or wife passes away, it is their spouse or de facto partner who is usually entitled to the largest share of the intestate estate and therefore the person most entitled to act as the estate administrator.

It is possible for more than one person to be entitled to apply for Letters of Administration.

How is the estate divided?

The division of the intestate estate in Queensland is also determined by the Succession Act 1981.

The division will depend on the family circumstances of the deceased.
