The Estateably Team

Changes to Ontario Probate Form 74H

Form 74H Consent replaces:

  • Form 74.12 Consent to Applicant’s Appointment as Estate Trustee with a Will
  • Form 74.12.1 Consent to Applicant's Appointment as Estate Trustee with a Will Limited to the Assets Referred to in the Will
  • Form 74.19 Consent to Applicant’s Appointment as Estate Trustee without a Will
  • Form 74.22 Consent to Applicant’s Appointment as Succeeding Estate Trustee with a Will
  • Form 74.22.1 Consent to Applicant's Appointment as Succeeding Estate Trustee with a Will Limited to the Assets Referred to in the Will
  • Form 74.25 Consent to Applicant’s Appointment as Succeeding Estate Trustee without a Will


The beneficiaries consenting to the application by the applicant must select the checkbox that is appropriate to their situation.

Additionally, the second paragraph, relating to the testamentary document of the deceased, should be removed in an intestacy.

Lastly, as in the prior version of the Consent, the person consenting can also consent to an order dispensing with the filing of a bond by the applicant. In the new version of the estate court form, the option takes the form of a box to be checked, rather than a paragraph to be added or deleted.
