Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee without a Will

When a person dies without a will (ieintestate), they do not have a named executor, therefore the person who wishes to apply will be required to file for a Certificate of Appointment of Trustee without a Will. The need for this application depends on the type of assets owned by the deceased and whether or not the assets can pass outside of the will. An executor has important responsibilities when administering an estate and it is imperative that the applicant understands what will be expected of them prior to committing to the appointment.
