Have you been named a trustee in santa rosa?
Our santa rosa trust administration lawyer can help
Being named the trustee of an estate, or even part of an estate, is a huge responsibility. Not only have you been recognized as a confidant of the trustor, but will remain a reliable resource for a beneficiary, sometimes for years to come. With this responsibility, however, can come complications. Keeping assets safe can mean dealing with tax issues, legal requirements, and other matters. Failing to properly see to these could lead to further difficulties and even probate litigation.

Navigating trustee requirements & complications
Once a trustor passes away, proper steps need to be taken not only to secure the property assets in question, but also to notify all the heirs related to the1 trust. This notification process needs to happen first and is often overlooked, or occurs too late, and complicates other trust administration tasks going forward.
Even when these steps are properly taken, other issues can arise. A trustee needs to be ready with the knowledge and resources to handle these and ensure that the property and assets remain intact while they are being looked after.
A will is an estate planning document to be addressed after your death.
