If a person dies without a will, and the estate is simple with no problems or complexities, the typical application for a grant of administration includes these documents:

  • Certificate of Wills Notice Search
  • Notice of Proposed Application in Relation to Estate (Form P1)
  • Submission for Estate Grant (Form P2)
  • Affidavit of Applicant for Grant of Administration Without Will Annexed (Form P5)
  • Affidavit of Delivery (Form P9)
  • Affidavit of Assets and Liabilities for Domiciled Estate Grant (Form P10)
  • Cheque for probate filing fees

When a person dies with a will but without designating an executor to administer his or her estate, the documents for a typical application are those submitted to obtain a Grant of Probate.
