ESTATE SETTLEMENT: Making Wishes a Reality, in Law and in Fact.
There are generally three main responsibilities that occur upon someone’s death with regard to their estate assets. Someone, generally a person appointed by the decedent as personal representative or successor trustee, will be responsible for ensuring that:
- The decedent’s assets are collected and managed;
- All debts, taxes and expenses of the decedent are paid, or properly dealt with; and
- Administering and distributing the assets for the benefit of the named beneficiaries.
