Surrogate Court Administration Proceedings for Deceased Lessees:

The Surrogate Court Department at our firm concentrates on assisting residential landlords and cooperative buildings in appointments of administrators for deceased lessees who died without wills, when possession cannot be obtained otherwise. Typical work for a client includes obtaining a certified death certificate; facilitating research on and contact with the family of a deceased lessee and filing administration proceedings for appointment of a Public Administrator when no other individual has sought to be an estate representative.
