Administration of Estate of Deceased Debtor pdf icon PDF 79 KB

    To appoint the Head of Legal Services as a nominee in an application to the probate register for a grant to administer the estate of the late Violet Dewsnap.

     

    Previously, on March 14 2016, the relevant Cabinet member Denise Le Gal authorised the appointment of the then Director of Legal, Democratic and Cultural Services Ann Charlton to apply to administer the estate. However, the process was not completed and Ann Charlton has since left.

     

    A debt for unpaid care fees has accrued and there are assets in the estate. No one is willing or able, however, to take out a grant of probate to administer the estate. As a debtor, the Council is entitled to take out a Grant of Probate.

     

    It would be in the Council’s best interests to administer the estate in order to recover the debt due.

     

    Decision:

    RESOLVED:

     

    That the Cabinet Lead Member for Corporate Support agreed to:

     

    1.     the Head of Legal Services being appointed to apply as a nominee in an application to the probate register, and

    2.     the Head of Legal Services being authorised to seal copies of each of the nominations made for the purpose of this application.
