Generally speaking, estate administration is defined as the process of transferring the deceased's assets to their beneficiaries. There are many steps that must be taken to ensure the estate administration process is followed through correctly. Estates are trusted to an individual who is referred to as either an executor or administrator. If the deceased didn't leave a Last Will and Testament, a member of the family will typically be named Administrator and will carry out the responsibilities of this role.
The estate's executor or administrator is responsible for going through the proper steps to ensure that the estate's administration is handled in a prudent manner. This is why it is so crucial to hire an effective and experienced estate administration attorney.
