The father of murdered Berkeley woman Snezana Velevski has been granted court permission to sell the house in which his daughter and her three children were killed in June 1994.
Kiril Josifovski had applied to the NSW Supreme Court to be appointed trustee for the sale of the property, the former family home of his daughter Snezana Velevski and her husband, convicted killer Ljube Velevski.
The bodies of Mrs Velevski, 25, and her daughters, Zaklina, 6, and twin babies Daniela and Dijana, were found huddled in a front bedroom of their home on June 20, 1994.
A post-mortem later found the throats of the four victims had been cut.
Velevski was convicted of the murder of his wife and three children and is now serving out a jail sentence at Goulburn Correctional Centre.
In September 1997 he was sentenced on each count to a minimum of 19 years' jail with an additional term of six years.
His sentences were to be served concurrently and he is eligible for parole on July 14, 2016.
On Wednesday, Justice Francois Kunc found in favour of Mr Josifovski's application.
" . . . the plaintiff [Mr Josifovski] is entitled to the relief he seeks in the summons, including orders for the sale of the property under section 66G of the Crimes Act," the judge said.
At the time of her death, Mrs Velevski and her husband were registered as joint owners of the property.
Yet in August 1995, Velevski filed a Notice of Death and the property became registered in his name alone.
Mrs Velevski and the children died without having made legal wills.
In March 2012, the NSW Supreme Court made a grant of administration to Mr Josifovski of the estate of each of Mrs Velevski and Daniela (technically the youngest child).
On Wednesday, the judge further ordered that Velevski was precluded from having his wife's interest in the Berkeley property pass to him under the right of survivorship or by inheriting any part of her estate.
"[I] declare that the defendant [Velevski] holds the property on trust as to one half share for himself and as to other half share for the plaintiff (Mr Josifovski) as administrator of the deceased's estate as [owners] in common in equal shares," the judge said.
"[I] order that the defendant (Velevski) pay the plaintiff's costs of and incidental to the summons on the indemnity basis and that those costs and expenses of the sale of the property be paid, in the first instance, out of what would otherwise be the defendant's share of the proceeds of the sale of the property."
