Do I Need a Lawyer to Administer a Trust?
When a person passes away and that person had established a trust prior to their 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 someone files a trust contest. Depending on the type of trust, real estate titles and assets must be transferred. The trustee must also pay debts and taxes owed by the estate.
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 can help protect your interests.
