Do I Need a Lawyer to Administer a Trust?
When a person passes away and that person had established a trust prior to his or her passing, the trust must be administered. Trust administration involves managing trust property and settling beneficiary claims, in accordance with the trust document. This can be a complex process, particularly if a beneficiary files a trust contest or if there is real property in the trust. Depending on the type of trust and what it holds, real estate titles and other assets must be transferred, debts must be settled, and taxes must be paid.
A lawyer can help a trustee properly manage the administration of the trust, from start to finish. Proper trust administration can reduce the likelihood of a dispute or even legal issues related to creditor claims or taxes. With our experience and commitment to our clients, our Phoenix trust administration attorneys are in an ideal position to protect your interests.
