Similarly, with a grant of Letters of Administration to an Administrator, only the Administrator can defend the Will. When contesting a Will an Executor may set aside their duties and also lodge a claim themselves for provision or further provision from the estate. An Executor may do this by naming a beneficiary or another person as Defendant in the proceedings. Once the proceedings are finalised, the original Executor can be reinstated to carry out the remainder of the administration and distribution of the estate. In circumstances where there is no Will the major beneficiary would be the nominated Defendant.
