Goods not Administered Law and Legal Definition

Goods not administered means goods, chattels and credits which had been the property of the decedent at his death, and remained in specie, unchanged and unconverted when the administrator de bonis non was appointed. Thus money received by the former executor or administrator in his representative capacity, and kept by itself separate from his own money, is regarded as not administered. [CHAMBERLIN, 70 Conn. 363, 374 (Conn. 1898)].
