Register to place a deceased estates notice

You can register to place a deceased estates notice if you are an executor of a will or a personal representative who is responsible for managing someone’s estate in a non-professional capacity. Placing this notice:

  • demonstrates that enough effort has been made to find creditors
  • protects you from being personally responsible for money owed to any unidentified creditors

Please note: solicitors or chartered accountants placing deceased estates notices should instead register as an authorised notice placer.

Register as an authorised notice placer

There are a variety of notices that can be placed depending on business type. Registered notice placers can benefit from:

  • all the benefits of a researcher registration
  • choice of a number of submission routes
  • quick and simple online notice placement
  • fast online payment via credit or debit card or by account (upon request)
  • a tracking feature for your notices in 'My Gazette'
  • same day notice publication
