When is trust administration necessary?


When you have a trust, your assets are transferred (funded) to the trust. Someone is named trustee, and that person manages the trust’s assets. 

Trust administration is necessary when the creator of that trust passes away or becomes incapacitated, leaving a designated trustee with the job of carrying out the wishes of the trust. 

Unlike probate, which is a public and court-supervised process, trust administration is private and efficient.

The trust administration process can be complex due to the many details involved and the potential for disputes. If you’ve been tasked with administering a trust, Will Gurus experienced team can guide you through the process.

In the event you are asked to be a trustee, you should fully understand and know of your responsibilities. If the trust assets are improperly accounted for, you can be held personally liable.

Choosing the right trustee can be daunting. That is why professional trust administrators, such as Will Gurus, can act as trustee and manage the assets for the benefit of the beneficiaries. With the help of our experienced team, we can resolve these issues efficiently and amicably.

Benefits of Trusts

Trusts are powerful tools in estate planning. Here are a few of the benefits:

Protection from probate

A properly drafted and funded trust allows the creator to avoid probate, court costs and unnecessary attorney fees.

Quicker distribution of assets

Beneficiaries of a will may have to wait months or even years before they can inherit assets. Trust assets can be issued per the trust's terms, avoiding delays.

More control

Trusts are enormously flexible. You have the ability to define how your trust works and what goes to who, when.

Shield your assets

Certain types of trusts can provide a shield against lawsuits, creditors, and other financial risks.
