About the Podcast

Executors of deceased estates need to be aware of the issues, risks and liabilities that can arise where the deceased was insolvent, or was potentially insolvent, at the time of their death.  In this program, barrister David Topp, from the Bank of New South Wales Chambers in Brisbane, looks at the issues that can arise for executors, and beneficiaries, where an estate is or may be insolvent: including when a person can be made bankrupt; the responsibilities of executors for the debts of the deceased; when and how an estate can be declared bankrupt; and identifying and protecting assets which are not vested in the trustee in bankruptcy, including superannuation and life insurance death benefits.

Presented By

David Topp
Barrister, Bank of New South Wales Chambers Brisbane, QLD

David Topp was admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland in January 2002, then during February 2006 began a generalist practice at the Queensland Bar before gradually transforming over the years into a full time wills, estates & family provision litigation specialist.

David also possesses a sideline practice interest in costs assessing, including being named on the Supreme Court of Qld’s Register of Approved Cost Assessors.

In addition David is a published author (Tennyson Breach on the twin themes of property law and the 2011 Brisbane floods); and two separate legal texts, Security for Costs in the State of Queensland and Security for Costs in New South Wales.

In 2015 David wrote a political article analysing the seat pendency risk facing then Qld Premier Campbell Newman. Entitled ‘Losing Campbell Newman: The LNP’s risky Ashgrove Strategy’, David’s assessment was prophetic, as not only did Newman lose his seat, his LNP has never won that seat, now named Cooper, ever since, nor has ever been returned to government in Qld either.
