My client is seeking to have a property transferred from his grandfather’s name to his mother’s name. The grandfather died intestate in 1982 leaving the client’s grandmother and the client’s mother. The property was, and still is, in his name. His estate was not administered. The client’s grandmother died intestate in 1993 and her estate was not administered. The client’s mother has agreed to renounce title. Her only child was my client, so my client will be the administrator of the estate(s).
Do I need to first obtain Letters of Administration on the client’s grandfather’s estate before then applying for Letters of Administration on the client’s grandmother’s estate? This will obviously take some significant time, although I suspect this is what I need to do.
Or can I apply for both Letters of Administration concurrently?
Or is there a quicker route at all?
Many thanks in advance.
