After the court has approved your application and all relevant supporting documents including the Schedule of Assets, the court will issue the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration.
If you only file the Schedule of Assets after you have submitted your initial application and the Supporting Affidavit, you will need to file a Supplementary Affidavit to confirm that the Schedule of Assets is true and accurate.
Some organisations may require a certified true copy of the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration, Schedule of Assets or the will before releasing funds to you.
If you are represented by a lawyer, you may apply for a certified true copy by filing a request through eLitigation.
If you are not represented by a lawyer, you will need to visit the LawNet & CrimsonLogic Service Bureau to file a Request for Certified True Copy. View a sample of the request form.
Note: You will need to provide the reason for the request in your application, for example that the bank requires a certified true copy of the grant before releasing funds. Specify which documents you need as the grant, Schedule of Assets and will are considered separate documents.
The estimated fee for certified true copies of the grant, Schedule of Assets and the will (if any) is about $50 (for a total of 5 pages). This includes eLitigation transmission and processing fees, as well as Service Bureau handling fees.
