Trustees, Executors and Beneficiaries Disputes
Executors and Trustees have a duty to all the Beneficiaries under a Will or Trust to administer the Deceased’s estate or Trust property with due diligence and in accordance with the terms of the Will or Trust.
An Executor or Trustee may be personally liable if they fail to:
- put the interests of the Beneficiaries before their own interests;
- act reasonably and prudently in relation to the estate or Trust property;
- take all proper steps to protect the assets of the Deceased or Trust; or
- distribute the proceeds of the estate to the Beneficiaries.
