In any conveyance from a personal representative, a lawyer must ensure that all required consents1 are obtained and be satisfied as to the authority of the personal representative and the validity of the testamentary instrument, if any.

A lawyer should be familiar with the provisions of the Probate Act and the Land Registration Act as they affect conveyancing, in particular with respect to the changes to the law and practice embodied in those statutes.
