Meaning of AD COLLIGENDUM BONA in English

AD COLLIGENDUM BONA

When a person dies and there is no apparent executor or administrator, a person can be appointed by Court order and for the limited and sole purpose of collecting, inventorizing and preserving the assets of the deceased until an appropriate full-fledged administrator can be found or appointed. Known then as an administrator ad colligendum , this person is a agent of the Court and does not have the true or full authority of an administrator of an estate.
