De bonis non administratis

Of goods not administered.

It is necessary to apply for a grant of administration de bonis non, sometimes referred to as administratis, (a grant 'concerning goods not administered') when, following a grant of probate, the personal representative has died or become incapable of administering the estate.

It is needed if the only administrator or last surviving administrator dies before the administration of the estate has been dealt with or if the only executor or last surviving executor dies where the chain of representation is broken (eg dies intestate) and part of the estate has not been administered, and finally if the only executor or last surviving executor or administrator has become mentally unable to deal with the administration.

The person appointed to administer an estate in these cases is referred to as the administrator de bonis non and distributes the remaining assets.
