Lift Restrictions in Letters of Administration or Testamentary: $2,500+

Occasionally (for various reasons), Letters of Administrator or Letters Testamentary may have a restriction limiting the Administrator or Executor from performing various tasks. Some common restrictions include:

  • Monetary limit of amount estate can collect and/or distribute
  • Prohibition on sale of real property

In order to remove these restrictions, a petition needs to be filed with the Surrogate’s Court. We charge $2,500 to file and remove the restrictions. You will also be responsible for any filing fees. Please note that if any party challenges the removal of the restriction, this will be considered a “contested” matter and the flat fee will not apply.

Please contact us for more information.
