Administering a trust after a loved one’s death is an enormous responsibility. In fact, many trust administrators are not in the best position to handle these duties.

Generally, the sooner you start administering a trust, the easier it will be. If you wait too long, assets that should have been distributed to beneficiaries could be spent. Furthermore, tax problems could arise. We strongly recommend contacting our lawyers within three months of the death; however, it is important to administer a trust no matter how long it has been delayed.
Some of the steps we will take to administer the trust include:
- Giving notice to beneficiaries
- Inventorying and appraising the decedent’s assets
- Assisting with issues related to outstanding debts and creditors
- Distributing assets according to terms of the trust
When compared with the complexities of probate proceedings, a trust administration is typically less time-consuming and less expensive. We will do everything in our power to make the entire process as smooth and efficient as possible.
