Can grant of probate/letters of administration be waived?

To protect the financial affairs of the deceased person and the beneficiaries of the Estate, Bank Australia is under no obligation to release funds in the Estate without a Grant of Probate/Letters of Administration being provided, regardless of the value of the Estate.

If the value of deposit accounts in the Estates exceeds $15,000 a Grant of Probate is required.
