Letters of Administration 101 - Many Reasons Why You Should Have a Will

Letters of Administration 101 - Many Reasons Why You Should Have a Will

September 23, 2021

Welcome back to another episode. Todays topic we discuss the process of "Letters of Administration" and how your assets are dealt with after you pass away without a Will.

When a person dies without a valid Will (which can occur more often than you may think) a person will need to apply for Letters of Administration to the Supreme Court of NSW. The Letters of Administration process allows the person to deal with assets and administer the estate according to the law in NSW.

Who is entitled to your assets? Is the Government entitled to the estate because there is no Will? who manages the estate after you pass?

These are just some of the things Cameron and Laura discuss in this episode.

August 12, 2021

On the 5 August 2021, well-known Australian fruit and vegetable processing company SPC has announced that it will mandate the COVID-19 vaccination for all staff.

The announcement is not without controversy with many commentators are suggesting that this could become Australia’s legal test case which could flesh out what is and isn’t “reasonable” with respect to an employer’s direction to an employee for a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination and may set a new standard for Australia moving forward, including for other vaccinations.
