Negligent Trust Administration
Because the duties associated with Trust Administration are highly complicated, disputes arising from trust administration are extremely common. Trustees are required to follow the exact terms of the trust, invest trust assets prudently, inventory and obtain true and accurate appraisals of the assets of the trust, and must provide the beneficiaries with precise accountings. Failing to do any of the above can and often does result in Trust Litigation.
While it is not unusual for trustors (the trust creators) to name friends or family as trustees (those who administrate the property in a trust, invest the trust assets, and distribute property to named beneficiaries), those who are not experienced in Trust Administration frequently may make inventory or accounting errors, fail to prudently invest trust assets, or engage in self-dealing that result in litigation for breach of their fiduciary duties to the beneficiaries.
As a result, it is beneficial to name an experienced Trust Administrator to prevent Trust Litigation. Since 1975, our Ventura Estate Planning Lawyers have been assisting clients establish and administrate trusts to avoid future litigation that is costly, both emotionally and financially.
