Many people choose to have Trusts because Trusts can, if properly funded, avoid probate at the settlor’s death. However, trustees have a great deal of responsibility and liability that goes along with being in charge.
Trust administration usually does not require court involvement. Lack of court involvement does not mean there are no duties involved or risk to the Trustee who is a fiduciary with the highest duty of care under the law. Seeking legal advice for a Trust Administration can be as simple as a one hour consult to getting help with each stage of the Trustee job.
Both a trustee and a personal representative of an estate should retain experienced counsel to guide them through the administration process.
