Planning an estate can be difficult enough on its own, but once you have completed it, do you have someone you can trust to carry out your wishes?

Are You An Overwhelmed Executor?

When a friend or relative names you to be the executor of his or her estate, it's a humbling honor. Yet many executors don't know that the administration of an estate is a responsibility they are not equipped to handle.

An executor can face hundreds of tasks. They can include:

  • Paying the estate's bills and settling debts
  • Distributing the proceeds of investments and insurance to beneficiaries
  • Locating, appraising and selling real estate
  • Locating, appraising and selling personal items and collector's items, such as coins, artwork or automobiles
  • Dealing with impatient family members

On top of that, executors are legally responsible for proper administration of the estate. It's an immense undertaking that can take months or years to complete.

At West, Longenbaugh and Zickerman P.L.L.C., our probate and trust administration lawyers know how to manage estates efficiently. As a result, the estate's value is preserved.
