Note: de bonis non: This phrase is used in cases where the goods of a deceased person have not all been administered. When an executor or administrator has been appointed, and the estate is not fully settled, and the executor or administrator is dead, has absconded, or from and any cause has been removed, a second administrator is appointed to perform the duty remaining to be done, who is called an administrator de bonis non, an administrator of the goods not administered and he becomes by the appointment the only representative of the deceased. Latin for “administrator of goods not administered”. The person appointed by a probate court to finish probate proceedings when the executor or previous administrator can’t finish the job.
De bonis non administratis, Latin for “of goods not administered”. A legal term for assets remaining in an estate after the death or removal of the estate administrator. The second administrator is called the administrator de bonis non and distributes the remaining assets.
