Trust Administration Services
Handling a Trust
Very often, individuals who are appointed to be trustees are family members of the recently deceased. Since trustees are in a fiduciary role while managing the trust, they are bound by law to act prudently and only for the benefit and best interests of the trust estate. Depending on the nature and complexity of a trust, management of the assets may take significant time and work on the part of the trustee. This can also includes filing of final tax returns, notifying interested parties, and continued management of property. For people who are have their own careers and families to take care of, it can be a daunting task.
