Ability of executors of deceased estates to take court proceedings before probate
The request was refused by Ministry of Economic Development.
From: John Creser
Dear Ministry of Economic Development,
Does the Official Assignee consider the executor of a deceased estate to have the standing to take and conclude Court proceedings in bankruptcy, before the executor is required to obtain probate?

Dear Mr Creser, Your request is refused under s 18(e) Official
Information Act 1982 because the information does not exist and
under s 18(h) because the request is frivolous or vexatious. If you
are dissatisfied with this decision you may ask the Ombudsman to
investigate and review it under s28(1)(a)of the Act. Regards, Grant
