Renunciation of probate

10 Renunciation of probate

(1) If a person who is appointed by will both executor and trustee thereof renounces probate, or after being duly cited fails to apply for probate, the renunciation or failure shall be deemed to be a disclaimer of the trust contained in the will.
(2) Where a person is, by a will, appointed both executor and trustee thereof but probate of the will or administration with the will annexed is, by or under this or any other Act, granted or transferred to the NSW Trustee or a trustee company in the place of that person or in addition to that person, then the NSW Trustee or trustee company shall, without further appointment, be deemed to be appointed trustee or one of the trustees of the will, as the case may require.
(3) This section applies only to a renunciation failure grant or transfer after the commencement of this Act.
