Responsibilities of the Estate Trustees
The Court awards a Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee with a Will which grants the Executor the right to manage the estate as a Trustee. It grants the Trustee, formerly called the Executor, the authority to handle the estate.
Nanda & Associate Lawyers are experienced in assisting Executors to administer different kinds of estates. It is recommended that Estate Executors seek independent legal advice from experienced Estate Lawyers to make themselves aware of their legal rights, duties and obligations. They need to make sure that they are not exposed to estate litigation at any time.
We assist the Estate Trustee throughout the estate administration process right from their appointment till the completion of their responsibilities and duties. The duties of an Estate Trustee include but are not limited to:
- Keeping the beneficiaries informed
- Managing the assets sale and distribution of sale proceeds to beneficiaries
- Performing the closure of bank accounts
- Informing the government authorities about the death of the Testator
- Referring a suitable tax advisor for filing of the final tax return
