Estate Administration

Helping families and executors get through a difficult time

Estate administration is the process of distributing the assets of an estate after someone dies in accordance with their wishes (if there is a will in place) and in accordance with provincial law. Usually, a will appoints an estate executor—the person in charge of wrapping up the estate. He or she has a number of duties, for example, ensuring that assets are properly distributed to beneficiaries and that debts and taxes are paid.

But, often, executors need help to meet their obligations and carry out their duties. For example, depending on the nature of the assets, a court application and other legal documents may be required. In that event, they may need to consult with a lawyer who understands this area of the law and who can provide the guidance they need.
