Personal representatives are entitled to transfer property in specie to a legatee in satisfaction of his or her legacy. This is known as appropriation. The personal representatives may be given a power of appropriation by the will, but a general power of appropriation arises under AEA 1925, s. 41. The power may be utilised in full or partial satisfaction of a legacy, and may be used in such circumstances as the personal representatives consider just and reasonable.3
