Reseal

   Fast, Fixed Fee Reseal

 Overview

Where a deceased person held assets in different countries, or in other Australian states or territories but owned assets in Australia, a reseal of a Grant may be required to deal with those assets.

Once you have the original Grant from the state or country of origin, an application is made to the Supreme Court in order for the Executor, Administrator, Estate’s Lawyer or Attorney to deal with those assets.

We are able to apply for a reseal of a foreign Grant from most originating countries including any state or territory of Australia.

We undertake a large number of reseals each year for law firms Australia wide and in foreign countries to assist them to complete the application process, to sell and collect Australian assets, and remit the funds to the interstate or foreign law firm’s trust account to complete distribution.

Once we have provided you with a written quote for the agreed work to be done, that price will not change unless the original information we are given is shown to be incorrect.

Note at this time, we only offer our Reseal service to New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory and Queensland deceased estate. We offer our DIY service for all other Australian States.

The Process

The first stage involves our lawyers reviewing a copy of the grant and your completed Questionnaire. Once our review is complete, we attend to all legally required advertising and notifications.
We draft your application for a grant and send this to you via post for signing and return to us. Typically you will have your application within (7) – (10) days from the time we receive your completed Questionaire and a copy of the grant which requires reseal.
Once we have received your signed application for a grant, we then lodge this with the Court. The application is usually dealt without the need to appear in Court.  The Court typically take between (4 ) – (6) weeks to process your application. Timing depends on how busy the Court is at the time your application is lodged.
Once your grant has been received by our firm from the Court, we send this to you via registered post. That’s it – you have your grant and can now legally deal with the deceased’s assets and finalise the estate.
