Ad colligendum bona – this term comes from Latin. In the area of Inheritance Law it details a situation where a person dies and there is no apparent executor or administrator. Then a person could be appointed with a Court order. For the limited and sole purpose of collecting, motorizing and preserving the assets of the decedent. And usually until an appropriate full-fledged administrator can be found or appointed. Their legal capacity is more like temporary managers of the assets left by the decedent.
