Notes to assist applicants
(i) Death Certificate – original or photocopy should be filed. If a death certificate is not readily available by reasonable enquiry the Court may accept other
evidence as to death. If death has been established at a previous hearing a further death certificate may not be required.
(ii) Will - the original or a copy certified as a true copy by a solicitor or Trustee Company must be supplied. Where a copy is produced the Court may still require
production of the original.
(iii) Next of Kin – where there is no will the next of kin for the purposes of succession are children of the deceased; if there are no children then brothers and
sisters; if neither of these then next of kin are the nearest relatives on the side of the family from whom the land originated. Generally speaking where
next of kin die before the person from whom succession is sought their children are entitled to the share they would have received had they survived the
deceased.
(iv) Notice of hearing – while an applicant is not required to give formal notice of hearing to other beneficiaries he or she is expected to consult with them and
advise them of the application and when it is to be heard. If this is not done the Court may direct that formal notice be given to the beneficiaries.
(v) Whāngai – where it is desired to include whängai as successors the Court will normally require evidence of their acceptance by the family either by signed
consents or orally at the hearing.
(vi) Succession by will – where a testator died after 1 July 1994 the right to succeed under a will is limited by s108 of the Act to certain classes of people. If the
successors named in a will are not children or their issue or qualify as next of kin of the testator an applicant needs to satisfy the Court that they qualify to
succeed. The Court office can assist you as to what the qualifications are to succeed.
(vii) Additional information – if you find that there is not enough room on the form to provide all the information you need to supply continue your application
on a separate sheet of paper.
CHECKLIST OF DOCUMENTS REQUIRED:
Death Certificate or other evidence as to death
(see note (i) above)
