Consent – Section 9 of the Wills Act 1997

If the value of the Victorian estate is in excess of one million dollars then all persons who are affected by a decision under section 9 of the Wills Act 1997 may consent to the powers of the Court being exercised by the Registrar of Probates.

Any such consent must be exhibited to the affidavit of executor(s)/administrator(s).
