Executors or Administrators can encounter problems when distributing an estate. It is important that these problems are dealt with because the Executor or Administrator could end up being financially responsible.
Executors who mistakenly deal with the estate can be personally liable to the estate. Executors and Administrators may want legal advice to help work out any problems that arise. Reasonable legal fees can be charged to the estate. If the matter can't be resolved, the Executor or Administrator may apply to the Court for direction. The Court can make an Order that settles the issue.
