Appointing a Temporary or Permanent Estate Administrator in Israel

The application to appoint a permanent estate administrator should be submitted as a separate application alongside an application for a succession order or a will probate order, together with the separate fee for this application in accordance with the prescribed rate in the regulations. (We also have an article on the various fees with the links to the Hebrew website.)

The application should be submitted to the Registrar of Inheritance Affairs in the following cases only:

  1. It is desired to appoint a person who is specified in the will.
  2. It is desired to appoint a person who is not specified in the will; this may only be done with the agreement of all the beneficiaries according to the will.  An application to appoint an estate administrator should be submitted alongside the application for the succession order and only with the agreement of all the legal beneficiaries.  

In any other case, the application should first be submitted to a family court.
