Inheritance Law and Lawyers

What inheritance laws apply in Australia?

Australian laws apply to inheritance of property. The appropriate jurisdiction for property located in Australia is the state or territory in which the property is located. Following the death of the property owner, the relevant Australian state or territory laws apply, irrespective of the nationality, religion, or place of residence of the deceased or beneficiaries. If the deceased was married, the jurisdiction in which the relevant parties were married is irrelevant, although foreign marriages are recognised in Australia for the purposes of Australian law.

Any property inheritance disputes are usually resolved in the relevant State Court. The Court in which the matters are heard depends on the value of the property, as differing Courts have different monetary limits.

There is no reserved portion.

Under Australian law, there is no ‘reserved portion’ of the estate which must go to certain persons. Anyone is free to make a will as he/she chooses. Most people in Australia make a will; however, a person may be entitled to challenge the will on the grounds that the deceased had a moral obligation to provide for them. No categories of persons are specifically excluded from inheriting under a will.

It is advisable to make a will to dispose of assets in Australia.

It is possible to apply for a “reseal” of a Grant of Probate obtained in another jurisdiction for a will executed there, but the process requires obtaining a Grant of Representation for the will in the original jurisdiction. Therefore, to minimize delays and inconvenience abroad, it may benefit a non-resident with mainly land interests in Australia, to have a separate Australian will.

Under Australia law, the will maker may specify that their will is only intended to apply to their Australian assets, and that they have made other arrangements for their assets in other jurisdictions.

In the case of intestacy, set rules apply as to the distribution of an estate. These depend on whether the deceased left a spouse (which may include a common law spouse or same-sex partner) descendents, or if neither, their extended family, including cousins and even second-cousins in some Australian States.

If the deceased has no surviving relatives who fit the intestacy rules categories, the estate passes to the Crown, i.e., to the relevant Australian State government common fund.

Gifts can be made during the lifetime of the property owner.

The general rule under Australian law is that persons are entitled to dispose of their assets as they wish, either in life, or after death (in accordance with their will). A gift given during life is not usually open to challenge, unless it can be shown that there was a defect in the ownership (for example, the donor did not actually own the property that they purported to give) or for other reasons which may effect the validity of the gift (for example, if the gift was procured through threats, undue influence, or fraud).

A person is not entitled to challenge a specific gift made by the deceased during their life on the grounds that the deceased had a moral obligation to provide for them. Any claim made against an estate for further provision is a claim against the whole estate within the jurisdiction of the claim, not against any one particular asset.

In determining ownership, the courts look first at the Certificate of Title, then at claims to equitable ownership.
Generally, in dealing with property ownership, the Courts look first at the manner of holding noted on the Certificate of Title. However, there are also instances where equitable interests in the property can be claimed by others, for example, when one party holds the property (or a part of it) on trust for the other, so that the ownership of the property is not truly as it appears on the Certificate of Title.

If you have a legal matter regarding any aspect of inheritance law and would like legal help from a specialist lawyer, then please complete your free legal enquiry form to request help from a lawyer practising inheritance law.

All Australian jurisdictions operate on a registration system for land ownership, and property owners are advised to retain the services of a lawyer or a conveyancer in the appropriate jurisdiction to ensure that they are properly registered on the Certificate of Title.

Property may be inherited by minors.

If a property is given to minor beneficiaries by will, then it is the responsibility of the executor to hold the property on trust for the beneficiaries until the age of majority (18 in Australia) or older if specified by the will (usually 21 or 25). A testator may appoint a guardian for their own children in their will (in the absence of the childrens’ other parent) but if the guardian is not the same person as the executor and/or trustee, it is the trustee who has control over the property, not the guardian. If there is no guardian for children residing in Australia, or if the appointed guardian is unsuitable, the Family Court of Australia appoints a guardian for the children until they reach majority.

Taxes on Family Inheritance

There are no death duties or inheritance taxes in Australia to reduce the family inheritance.
However, capital gains tax will affect any item which is subsequently sold.

Methods by which law may govern distribution of property on death:

There are three fundamental ways in which the law governs the distribution of property on
death.

1. By will of deceased (testator),
2. Prescribed by law as on intestacy, and
3. Through family provision legislation under which a Court may vary the provisions of
the will of the deceased if insufficient provision is made for the spouse , children or
other dependants of the deceased. This limits the testators freedom of testation.

Tax law

There are no death duties in Australia; however, certain income or capital transactions that occur as a consequence of a person's death are taxed.

The tax consequences are different from the perspective of:

  • the deceased person
  • the executor
  • a beneficiary of the deceased estate.

Inheritance tax

There is no inheritance tax in Australia, with Australia abolishing what was known as death duties in 1979.However, assets acquired from the estate may become subject to Capital Gains Tax. When you inherit an asset as a beneficiary of the estate of a person who died on or after 20 September 1985, you must keep special records.

If the asset was acquired by the deceased person before 20 September 1985, you need to know the market value of the asset at the date of the person's death and any relevant costs incurred by the executor or trustee. This is the amount that the asset is taken to have cost you. If the executor or trustee has a valuation of the asset, ask for a copy of that valuation report. Otherwise you will need to get your own valuation.

If the asset you inherit was acquired by the deceased person on or after 20 September 1985, you need to know full details of all relevant costs incurred by the deceased person and by the executor or trustee. Request those details from the executor or trustee. Even if you inherit a house that was the family home of the deceased person, you need to keep records of costs paid by the deceased person in case you are not able to claim a full exemption for the house after you inherit it.

Australian Laws on Probate After Death

Probate is the legal process by which a deceased person's estate is distributed. If a person dies with a valid will, his estate is divided according to that will. Probate also deals with the validity of wills, challenged wills, estates with no will, and often the estates of minors or other people seen as incompetent.

Will's Executor

When an individual writes his will he designates a person to act as the executor. This person will be responsible for paying off liabilities, distributing assets in accordance with the will, and liquidating any remaining assets.

If there is no will, or the appointed executor is unable or does not wish to perform this role, a person interested in the deceased's estate may apply to the courts to be granted the power of executor.

No Will

The laws regarding a person's estate that dies without a will, varies within state and territory. The estate falls under the laws of the state or territory in which the deceased person claimed residency. While some variety remains, many states and territories have tried to unify these laws. In general, the spouse is first in line for distribution of estates without a will, followed by the deceased's children. If the deceased does not have a surviving spouse or any children, his estate is distributed to his parents. If there are no surviving parents, his estate is distributed to extended family members.

In Australia, spouse is defined as a "de facto relationship," determined by the time the couple was together, the time they cohabited, property ownership, sexual relationship and the couples' presentation to the world.

If someone other than the will's author destroys a will, copies of the will may be used in court once the court has approved them. If the will's author destroys the will an earlier will is used, if there are no previous wills the deceased is seen as having no will, and the estate follows the legal order of distribution.

Challenging a Will

A will can be challenged on its validity if one of the procedural steps were not followed. In this case, an earlier will may take precedent; if there is no prior will, the estate is treated as if there is no will.

A will can also be challenged if a person believes that he requires more financial assistance. While any eligible person may apply for this challenge, the courts normally limit these claims to close relatives, cohabitants and dependents.

The first step in challenging a will is to issue a court summons with a detailed affidavit of relevant facts the applicant must swear to the truth of.


Deceased Estates & Probate in Australia

In Australia, the law of succession deals with the distribution of property from a deceased estate. One of the concepts of Australian property law is that property must have an owner; this is the basis for much of the Australian succession legislation, whereby property must transfer from a deceased person to another person. In each Australian state and territory, the Supreme Court has been granted the jurisdiction for matters concerning succession.

Basically with deceased estates within Australia where a person obtains a benefit from the will of a person or the rules of intestacy, they become known as a beneficiary. However, should a person obtain realty from a will or the rules of intestacy then the provision becomes known as a devise and the person becomes known as a devisee. These terms all stemmed from English jurisprudence and identify that the making and administration of a will can become complex and there are many laws which effect the outcomes that the will is trying to achieve. Because of this complexity it is usually considered necessary to seek the advice of a legal practitioner experienced in succession law at each stage of the probate process.

After a person dies the administration of the deceased estate in Australia becomes a regulated process to ensure that the testamentary intention of the deceased is complied with. These regulations provide a safe guard to ensure that the estate of the deceased is distributed according to how they have written their will so that the risk of fraud or mismanagement is minimised. This is one of the reasons that the Supreme Courts of each Australian state and territory has been provided with the jurisdiction of succession matters. For those who are involved in the distribution and administration of property from a deceased estate in Australia it is essential that they understand the regulations and laws which need to be complied with.


Australia Probate Records

Probate records are court records that describe the distribution of an individual’s estate after he or she dies. Information in the records may include the death date, names of heirs and guardians, relationships, residences, an inventory of the estate, and names of witnesses.

An individual who left a will is said to have died "testate." Someone who did not leave a will (or a valid will) died "intestate." The probate process is essentially the same for both and may take many years to complete.


Availability of Probate Records

Wills or probate records were kept by each state in Australia, beginning in the 1800s. If the deceased had property in another country, the will may have been probated in the other country.

The Family History Library has a solid collection of probate records from Australia; however, many of them cannot be circulated to Family History Centers. Probate records are listed in the Place Search of the Family History Library Catalog under:
