Are you administering an estate?
Carrying out the administration of estate can be an overwhelming task, especially as it often falls on family members who are grieving.
Complicated estate issues must be resolved
Estates are becoming increasingly complex due to a number of factors, including (but not limited to):
(a) the way people hold their wealth;
(b) owning assets in structures such as Self-Managed Superannuation Funds, Family Trusts and Companies (including family businesses);
(c) an increasingly global spread of assets and beneficiaries; and
(d) blended family situations.
Estate disputes and time periods
The time period to administer an estate can range from six months to a number of years.
Estate disputes, including questions as to the validity of a Will, family provision claims and disputes about estate administration can further complicate the administration of an estate.
Duties of executors (and the risks they face)
Executors have a duty to ensure that an estate is administered promptly and in the correct manner in order to avoid the possible risk of personal liability.
