Estate Administration

The Role of an Estate Administration Lawyer

An estate administrator basically ensures that all stipulations in a will are carried out in a timely manner. Other estate administration duties include collecting any income that is owed to the estate; paying any outstanding debts, including income taxes; withholding any inheritance taxes; and, finally, distributing the remaining financial assets to the rightful beneficiaries.
