Project No. 34(II)
The primary purpose of the reference was to examine the adequacy of statutory requirements relating to administration bonds. In Western Australia, it was necessary for an administrator to execute a bond despite the fact that a comparable state of law to that which existed when the requirement was adopted no longer existed.
In 1972, the Committee was asked to consider and report on the law relating to administration bonds and sureties. This reference was part of a general reference to review the law of trusts and the administration of estates, and was adopted by the Commission upon its inception.
The Administration Act Amendment Act 1976 (WA) implemented the Commission’s recommendations.
