Registrar Earles - letters of administration & hot topics
Add to CPD Planner


Applications for a grant of letters of administration both with the will annexed, and on intestacy, still cause problems and consequent delays.

This webinar aims to lift the veil of mystique in this area and provide practical advice with a view to ensuring that you are able to prepare the relevant documents in an effective manner.

Registrar Earles will explore the reasons for each type of application and who is entitled to apply for a grant of letters of administration. He will follow with guidance regarding the completion of the relevant forms that are required in each circumstance. He will also discuss the Status of Children Act 1969 inquiries.

Following on from a well-received session at the Legal Executives Conference in August this year, this webinar is not to be missed.
