Improper Execution of a Will Claim

Improper Execution of a Will Claim

Executors and Trustees have obligations and responsibilities which must be carried out. These include collecting all the assets of the deceased, settling any outstanding debts and distributing what is left between the beneficiaries.

The rules relating to executors and trustees regarding their obligations, responsibilities and duties are clear.

If an executor or trustee fails to provide appropriate information or distribute the estate correctly, you may be able to bring a claim.

Common claims against executors or trustees include:

         Failure to administer the deceased estate properly which has resulted in the estate suffering a loss.

         Failure to collect assets or release them quickly enough.

         Failure to identify beneficiaries or interpret the Will correctly

         An unreasonable delay in distributing the estate to beneficiaries

An executor or trustee that is guilty of maladministration or misappropriation may be personally liable.

If you are a beneficiary and you feel that an executor, trustee or administrator have failed in their duties, we would advise you to seek legal advice as soon as possible.
