A letter of Administration is a legal document that gives the receiver the right to administer the estate of a deceased individual. By receiving this letter, the individual has control over all the assets and liabilities that were left by the deceased. It also gives them other specific legal powers that would have to be negotiated with the lawyer of the estate.
Tips for writing a letter of administration
- Be clear on the rights and obligations the individual will be receiving
- Let the individual know any restrictions they have on their power
Sample letter of administration
